Hustle Is Not Enough: Attention to Detail and Creating Your Niche in STR

TJ Tijani immigrated from Nigeria, landed in Houston, and his story is a whirlwind of hustle and entrepreneurship. He grew up with a single mom who was raising 5 kids, and watching her tenacity and grit inspired TJ to be the first in my extended family to graduate college and get a job as an engineer.

But he hated the 9-5 grind, and took matters into his own hands, walking away from his job and jumping head first into the short-term rental business. After lots of studying and trial & error, TJ now runs a successful STR empire, and teaches others how to do the same.

It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Magnolia Cottage Farmstay 😍

This sprawling 70 acre property is in Lancaster, PA. She caters to large families who come together for reunions and family getaways. So often when we think of short-term rentals, we think of vacation spots and smaller places, not necessarily larger plots of land.

We also tend to get wrapped up in the amenities on the interior of a space, but we think that in this case, the biggest amenity is how expansive their property is and how much acreage they have with nothing on it! Check out their photos to see this gorgeous property.

Whatever your dream is and whatever experience you want to create with your properties… you can make it happen!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!

Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
