James von der Lieth

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. (Here are some reviews) In 2016, I stopped growing my business to work at an accounting automation startup called Ceterus. At Ceterus, I worked on the software development team as the first product manager. During my time as product manager, the company raised 2 more rounds of venture financing, saw triple digit YoY revenue growth and 100%+ growth in customer engagement with our software.

During my time at Ceterus, STR managers and VRMs would 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! 

In the summer of 2019, I decided to leave Ceterus to travel the world, work on VRM Empire, and resume consulting for STR managers in North America.
