Dr. Chau Ong – Owner and Founder At Dr. Chau Ong lifestyle Entrepreneur and CEO OF Beyond BnB Secret
To start this business cost first month rent plus security
deposit. That is all you need, so it’s a lot less than buying.
You can do about 10 homes with arbitrage so you can
make 10 times the cash flow.
Dr. Chau is a speaker, coach, and the Founder of Beyond BnB Secrets. Having moved to America as an immigrant in search of the “American Dream,” he thought having a prestigious degree and a good job would bring financial freedom for him and his family. After graduating with a doctorate degree in Pharmacy, he found himself trapped under a mountain of school loans. He realized that he was just a glorified corporate slave without financial freedom. The final straw was that he could not even be with his mom when she was sick because of the lack of flexibility at work. He was determined to fight for his financial freedom no matter what it took. After many failed businesses, he was able to crack the code with Corporate Housing Arbitrage. He was able to retire as a pharmacist in his early thirties by having more than 30 Airbnb and corporate housing rentals, which quadrupled what he used to make as a pharmacist. Aside from the financial freedom it brought him, he now only works a few hours per week!
