On today's episode we share highlights of an amazing week at the Vacation Rental Women's Summit (VRWS) at The Ritz Carlton in New Orleans. This event was top-notch on every level, and the collaborative atmosphere among attendees was truly remarkable. We had the opportunity to go to dinner with keynote speaker Amber Hurdle, who was also our very first guest on the podcast (Episode 2) and has affectionately become our "spirit woman". More on that in the episode!

We share highlights from our very first breakout session, where we had the founders of the startup Got2Go in the "OTA Hot Seat" for some heavy hitting Q&A with great audience participation. Side note, do you remember when Airbnb came to VRMA in 2008 and asked for our feedback as they built out their platform? Neither do we....because it didn't happen :) This collaborative session with Got2Go was unique in nature and showed how these founders are truly building a platform for hosts, by hosts.

Big thanks to Amy Hinote and her incredible staff at VRM Intel that produced both the opening and closing conferences of 2021. Business travel is back, and we love being part of this collaborative industry that grows so much from these events.

We also reflect on the past 2 months of learning how to build a podcast. Spoiler alert... "ALWAYS HIT RECORD"!
