⚠️Frequently Asked Questions

Does Pricing Change?

Yes. Pricing will increase as more course content is released. You are highly encouraged to enroll now to lock in the lowest pricing possible.

What about International Students?

You will love it! About 25 to 30% of our students are international students. CT aim's to teach fundamentals and principles that are applicable globally. Certainly we might use specific examples to the United States, but if you understand the concepts, you will be able to apply them globally. This is why we say we like to teach rather than give you some cheat sheets simply to copy. People who learned this information should be able to adapt it to their local region.

What if I Don't Have Any Business Experience?

You will learn step-by-step how to conduct market research, find properties, convince landlords and property managers to work with you. You don't even need to buy a single home to get started listing properties on vacation rental sites

What If I Don't Have Any Money?

The beauty of this business model is that you barely need any money at all to get started. Then once you've got one cash flowing property up and running I'll teach you how to scale and grow the business using only the money that you make from your property. This organic growth process allows you to scale to massive income with almost not money in the game.

What If I Don't Have Any Business Contacts?

In this course I'll show you who you need to add to your team to be successful and where to find them. There's even one special contact that if you can establish a relationship with they may as well just connect you to everyone else you need on your team.

What If I Don't Have The Time?

PERFECT! You'll have direct access to partner with me on deals. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and collect monthly cashflow aka "Earn While You Learn" If you think you need to work 100 hours per week to become successful then I've got good news for you. It doesn't take anywhere near that. Once you've found your property everything is pretty streamlined from thereon. The great thing is that you won't have to learn everything the hard and slow way because you'll learn the shortcuts and advanced techniques I this course.

What If Every Business I've Started Has Failed?

YOU'RE NOT ALONE! I struggled for more than 7 years before I ever even began to taste success and I wanted to give up and even did give up briefly at times. But I promise you that if you get up off the ground, dust yourself off and put everything you have into a proven system you will win eventually.

How Do I Convince My Spouse To Let Me Do This?

Unless you're in an unhealthy relationship then your spouse loves you and wants the best for you. Your success is their success but your failure is also their failure. But if you truly love your partner then your should want a better life for them. You should be willing to do whatever it takes to create that life for them. And if they truly love you they may not understand your ambition at first but they will get behind you once you start to win... trust me ;)

⚠️Wait...You Have Other Options


I already know that STR Academy is thee best option to generate wealth rapidly and works. But what would it cost for you to learn this yourself? I like to be straight up with all your options, so you're fully informed.


This is gonna cost you around $100,000+ to accomplish. You'll will have a degree from an accredited university. You will learn professional management, business structure, accounting, legal matters, etc. However you will not learn how to start a "real business" and actually make money from it. But wait, it will not only cost you $100K it will cost your life's most precious asset "Time" 8 years and 100K?


True professional coaching that is worthwhile starts off around $10,000 - $20,000 and that's just for 6-12 months. If you want higher level training you're looking at a $50,000+ investment. It's my personal opinion that business coaching is essential for massive success but only after you've created a stable business that's generating 6-figures and have aspirations to take it to the 7 to 8 figures range.I'll get you to 7-8 Figures in no time! And I'll be your one on one coach


This is what many people do their first time around in business. I certainly did this because I wanted to do things my way and I was certain I would succeed.

This is why it took me more than 7 years to really understand the fundamentals of business and wealth creation. Looking back I should have sought out more professional help. It would have saved me a lot of grief and sleepless nights. Now, you can certainly do this on your own. And if that's where your head is at then that's ok, but just understand that the path of trial and error is a long dark road.

You could literally take years off your learning curve by investing in quality training. I see so many people in business that are making the same mistakes and blind to the same errors as I was. Sadly, I know their future is grim. In the end they might make it, they might not but it's going to be rough, I guarantee it.


This is the story of most people lives. They have aspirations but they never get started. They have a dream for their ideal life but they don't take the first step. The years go by, they lie to themselves saying "one day I'll do it!". After a while their "what if's" become "could have's", "would have's", and "should have's". This isn't the life I want for you.

The more successful I become the more sympathy I have for those who are falling behind. I truly want the best for everyone who is willing to make the effort to win in life. Success really can be yours but you've got to claim it, you've got to invest in yourself and your future.
