Travel has been a passion of mine from since I went on a school trip to Europe when I was 12 years old. Even though I traveled a bit with my parents, it was the first time that I was with others my age, discovering new foods, cultures, and languages. I was hooked. I traveled a lot from 19-23, but quickly realized that traveling just to see things, with no purpose or job and no income, became draining. Airbnb has not only provided me resources for unlimited travel but also something to tinker with daily, giving me a sense of purpose and accomplishment. In this episode I teach others how to get into the business like I did.
I met Gwen of Fiery Millennials at Camp Mustache SE, where I was presenting, and since then we've been internet friends.

They both that popular blogs on the subject of FIRE: Financial Independence Retire Early. This is a subject near and dear to my heart. This episode covers the topics of Early Retirement, Financial Independence and, my Airbnb business. Thanks for listening!

I'm different - Vox
So this one is a bit odd to post (and please forgive my language, as the app Voxer does not let me edit my audio), and yet I think it might be helpful/inspirational for some so I think it's important to share. In the short 2min 45sec clip, I am telling my friend about a past Astrology reading I received from my Astrology Fairy Godmothers - honestly, if you are interested, email me, I would be elated to share them - in which they told me that I will always go a different route and it's just in my nature, who I am. This little tidbit, blew me open with tons of validation, helping me to more easily recognize my path going forward. I am eternally grateful.
So if you have ever thought there was something wrong with you for being a little different, please know that you are not alone...
“Scott's little spot here in Boulder is just exactly what I needed. It was deceivingly large, had big comfy beds, was centrally located to all of Boulder, and really gave us that "living in Boulder" feeling. Great neighbors, great house, fantastic hosts. After a long day exploring beautiful Boulder, this was just the little oasis downtown I needed to refresh for another day. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Boulder!”
