Journey into Advocacy
Welcome to How to Save Your Vacation Rental, a 10-part educational podcast series hosted by vacation rental advocate Dana Lubner that will teach you how to solve your business’ greatest looming threat -- unfair regulation -- from the ground up.
In this episode, you'll hear how Dana got into advocacy, and how she's been able to take it farther than she ever thought possible. As we explore Dana's journey, we'll hear from industry voices that ended up on similar paths despite starting from radically different backgrounds. You'll learn how to start your own journey or inspire others to start their own.
This episode is brought to you by TRACK powered by TravelNet Solutions, providing integrated solutions to transform the way vacation rental hospitality works.
