She explains how she and her partners scaled that business to 8-figures in annual revenue and what her biggest leverage points and breakthroughs have been. She provides tactical strategies for bootstrapping a lean startup, growth hacking, and paying attention to the right metrics and KPIs. She also explains the concept of co-living, how she developed her passion for it, and why she founded her Co-Living business ReStation in the Canary Islands, which she has now scaled up to 4 buildings that have housed over 1,000 nomadic travelers. She shares both the real estate and business lessons she has learned from operating her co-living space, and why it is crucially important to co-living spaces to establish a clearly defined culture.
