Hi, my name is James von der Lieth and here's how this course came to be:

In 2013, I partnered with Lodgix, a cloud-based VRM software, to become their preferred QBO consultant. I quickly realized becoming an expert in the VRM industry was how I could carve out a niche for my consulting business. Since 2013, I've consulted for 100+ VRMs using various softwares.

In 2016, I stopped growing my business to work at an accounting automation startup. Since then, the startup has raised $20mil in venture funding and has consumed my life.

VRM entrepreneurs still reach out to me all the time to do 1-on-1 consulting. The problem was that I didn't have the time to help these business owners, and until I developed this course, I had nowhere to point them to get the information they need to succeed.

After turning down the 3rd consulting solicitation in a week, it occurred to me I should make a course that VRM owners can take at their own speed without paying high hourly rates for a 1-on-1 consultant!

"Great call, James was very helpful. He provided valuable feedback on many aspects of my Airbnb business and I would highly recommend him!"

- Aaron M, VRM Entrepreneur

"The principles laid out in this course have helped automate our accounting system. We get all of our owners statements and financials completed by the 10th of the month like clockwork! I would highly recommend this system to any vacation rental company who is tired of wasting time doing accounting."

- Cody Powell, Partner, J Powell Vacation Rentals

"We have used James for consulting many times since we opened our office. He has always been very knowledgeable about anything we have needed. Will continue to use him in the future."

- Cindy Keene, First Choice Vacation Rentals


We believe VRMs should be empowered by an accounting system that...

    • Embraces Automation
    • Is simple and easy to use
    • Provides checks and balances against common areas where VRMs have leakage
    • Can tell you how much of other stakeholders’ money you are holding at any given time
    • Can accurately tell you how profitable you are on a gross and net basis on a timely basis
