Long Bio
MeiLani, and her husband Michael, are the parents of five beautiful children under 11. They are her world! But she recognized that she was a much better mom when she was also embracing her inner entrepreneur.

When MeiLani’s two-year-old son was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2014, it was the wakeup call she needed in life. She realized it was time to stop making excuses of all the reasons she couldn’t do things, and instead just jump in and DO. Instead of focusing on the “Why Me?” situations she learned to develop a “Why NOT Me?” attitude when dealing with challenges and attacking life’s big goals.

She jumped into her lifelong dream of becoming a real estate investor. Since 2013, MeiLani has been flipping homes, building new construction, buying short and long-term rentals, and much more. After years of watching Airbnb’s growth and wanting a piece of the action, she acted on her “Why NOT Me?” mantra and opened her first four Airbnbs within the next four months and hasn’t stopped since.

MeiLani’s passion is helping people to stop just talking and dreaming about the life they want to have, and actually take action and start living it! In addition to coaching people on how to launch and scale their own Airbnb Hosting business, MeiLani also coaches individuals, corporations, and large audiences on how to Stop Dreaming and Start Doing. She loves to travel and play with her husband and kids. MeiLani is based in Cary, NC.
