There was no thought of a pandemic when Matt sat down with Brian Olson of Beachcomber Vacation Homes at last year's LiveRez conference. The vacation rental industry was already in turmoil, however, and Brian's 'everything's gonna be alright' philosophy came as a real comfort.  

More importantly, his years of experience and deliberate approach to growing and maintaining a highly professional vacation rental business with his family are more relevant than ever.
