Buy the short-term rental that will
accelerate your journey to freedom!

Doctors are increasing their income, lowering their taxes,
and building generational wealth… without working
a single extra clinical hour—or giving up their day jobs.

 And they’re doing it by investing in short-term rentals. 

Isn’t it time you tried this proven strategy for yourself?
Hosted by Letizia Alto, M.D. and Kenji Asakura, M.D.

Leti & Kenji share a quick 90 second overview of the course in their words. You will get a chance to learn more about them a little later.

For you, becoming a doctor was about helping people first and making a good living second...

The reality? You’re still kinda waiting for the “good living” part. 

All you want to do is make a good salary, and have time for yourself, your significant other, your children, your friends and your family.

You want to travel, and not have to max out your credit card to do so…nor do you want to extreme-Groupon your way through a trip full of budget hotel rooms and excursions to see the world’s largest fiberglass statue of Santa Claus instead of doing something actually fun.

You want to spend time with your significant other. You want to watch Ted Lasso together on the sofa without falling asleep after the opening credits. You want to go out for tapas and enjoy a glass of Rioja without worrying about the bill or being called in for a case.

You want to spend time with your kids. You want to attend school concerts—and relish every off-key squeak and honk from the woodwind section. You want to surprise them with a trip to the theater for the latest Pixar film…and not have to smuggle snacks in your purse.

You want to see your friends and have fun more than once a year, whether it’s a night of Cards Against Humanity, or just chilling out around the fire pit. Better yet, you’d love to take a buddies-only weekend ski trip or spa retreat without worrying about missing work.

And you want to stop being crushed by taxes. You’re not opposed to paying your fair share, but somehow famous billionaires are able to keep more of their money than you do (and go into space). If you could get some of your tax money back, it would make a big difference!

You sacrificed so much to become a doctor. Is it really so much to ask that you get to make (and enjoy) a good living?

What’s standing between you and the good living you desire?

What’s getting in the way of you having “a good living” AKA more time and more
money to enjoy that time?

Is it that you picked the wrong speciality? (You knew you should have gone into dermatology…)

Wrong city and state to live in? (You knew the cost of living would be too high for a growing family…)

Wrong hospital or clinic to be based out of? (This Q4 call schedule is a doozy…)

Wrong home or wrong car? (Why oh why did you not listen to your spouse when they told you to resist the siren song of the Tesla S, 3, X, or Y?)

Nope.

Your doctor job is what's getting in the way - but not for the reason you think

Working as a doctor means you're stuck in the finger trap of trading time for money

Sure, you make a good salary…and you know you shouldn’t complain.

But your salary is contingent upon the number of hours you work—so you’re effectively trading your time for money.

It doesn’t matter if you make $80 or $800 an hour, there’s a limit to how many hours that a human being can work.

(And that’s before the taxes come out of your paycheck. Ouch.)

Which means there’s a big, non-negotiable cap on your income potential as a doctor.

So as long as you’re trading time for money, you will never “get ahead” or have “more” time. Period.

Instead, you have to stop working for your money...and start making your money work for you.

Because as Warren Buffet so famously said, “If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”

The way to make money while you sleep? Is to invest your money.

Here’s the thing. There are a lot of different ways to invest your money from commodities like gold and silver, to real estate investing trusts (REITs), to Bitcoin and other crypto currencies.

But for busy doctors with access to some capital and the ability to secure loans—investing in short-term rentals can make more than a lot of sense—they can make bank. (And save you a small fortune in taxes, to boot.)

Here's what some of our other students have to say...

“We’d only just started investing in long-term rentals when we decided to jump into STRs. Our first STR has so far grossed $110,000 each year, bringing us $48,000 in cashflow and $187,000 in tax deductions. Our second STR has grossed $140,000 in a year, with cashflow of $70,000 and $220,000 in tax deductions. We’ve gone on to buy four additional STRs with even better returns—one of them is expected to gross $250,000 in 2022. “Leti and Kenji are knowledgeable investors and mentors who teach in a straightforward way. Thanks to what we’ve learned from them, we’ve been able to cut down to part-time on our other jobs so we can make real estate a priority.” –  Dr. Christina and Mike T.

“We’ve calculated a return of over 25% cash on cash on all three of our STRs. In one month this past summer we made as much income as my husband grosses monthly as a vascular surgeon, from just two of our STR properties. That doesn’t include the tax benefits we’ve seen from a cost segregation study we had done. “I personally enjoy designing and setting up our STRs, so I make sure I have time to participate in that part of the business—we’re excited to continue growing our real estate portfolio!” – Isabel and Dr. Carlos P.

It's time for you stop working for your money...and start making your money work for you.

Quite simply, the other ways of making money you’ve tried don’t make enough money to be worth the time.

Seeing more patients. Picking up extra shifts. Hustling on the side by doing chart reviews and surveys. Yes, it’s income, but it’s small in comparison—and you’ll still have to pay taxes on that income.

And too many of the other investing instruments are either too risky or too slow. You’re either sweating the volatility of cryptocurrencies, or feeling your chin hairs come in as the miracle of compound interest takes its sweet time.

The worst part about other investing instruments? In most cases, you end up paying taxes on the gains at some point.

For many doctors, short-term rentals hit a sweet spot for speed, cashflow, and taxes.


But for that to work, you need to know how to do things like:

 Purchase the right kind of property that will make money.

You want to purchase an asset, not a liability. To invest in STRs effectively, you need to know how to analyze whether a deal will cashflow (and ideally cash whoa!).

 Increase the value of your STR.

You do this by increasing income and decreasing expenses. There are lots of tips, tricks, and strategies you can and should leverage so you can increase your cashflow and build equity.

 Collect tax-free income.

If you meet certain criteria, you might not have to pay taxes on any of your rental income.

 Shelter your clinical income from taxes, too.

If you meet material participation criteria laid out by the IRS, you can use your STR to create large tax shelters that create tax savings for you. You’ll need to go over all of this with your accountant, but the course will tell you what you need to know to start a great discussion with them.

Who are Leti & Kenji?

We are founders of Semi-Retired MD. And we started our real estate journey back in 2015.

We are founders of Semi-Retired MD. And we
started our real estate journey back in 2015.

We were newlyweds who’d met while working at Swedish Hospital in Seattle.

We had done everything we were supposed to do:

✔ Bachelor’s degrees from good schools
✔ Acceptance into competitive med schools
✔ Residency…and all the long hours that came with it
✔ Fellowship (hospital medicine for Leti)

And we liked the work we did as hospitalists—it was always rewarding both personally and intellectually.

But our schedules were so packed that we had to schedule date nights a full month in advance.

So when we managed to scrape together the PTO for a trip to New Zealand, we thought it was just a well-deserved break.

As we holed up in our camper van, thousands of miles away from the hubbub of the hospital, though, we started to dream about a different future for ourselves.

One where our lives weren’t built solely around the demands of our hospital jobs. Where we could spend more time with each other and our (future) children. Where we didn’t have to put off our life goals until we hit age 65 as we’d always heard.

We started researching financial independence and set an audacious goal for ourselves: replace both our clinical incomes in cashflow in 7 years.

After exploring our options, we decided to invest in income-producing rentals.

We started small with duplexes and a fourplex…and within 3 years, we had achieved financial independence, thanks to tax-free cashflow, debt pay down, market and forced appreciation, and tax savings.

These days, we have over 150 income-producing long- and short-term rental units in our portfolio. We’ve continued to buy and sell properties in multiple markets, including large multi-family properties. (We partnered with several of our alumni to go all in on a 160-unit building!)

Along the way, we’ve learned a LOT about buying, rehabbing, and managing rental properties—no small amount of it by trial and error.

We created Accelerating Wealth, along with an advisory board of short-term rental owners,  so that we could share hard-earned knowledge on income producing vacation rentals, like Airbnb, VRBO, and many others, because the fastest way to accelerate your growth is by learning from someone who’s been there before you.

Our students who have put in the time to make this real estate investing strategy work for them have been able to do things like:

Multiple six figures & more of annual cashflow from their real estate portfolios
Collect six-figure tax refunds
Build significant portfolios for themselves in less than two years—even though they started small
Buy 60+ unit buildings from out of state—that’s how confident they’ve become with the finer points of purchasing properties. 
Leave jobs that don’t fulfill them, or finding new jobs at practices with better schedules 
Spend more time with their families, traveling, and finally feeling free and empowered enough to decide when and how they work as clinicians*

We love watching our students free themselves to live lives they love. And with your permission, we’d love to help you do the same thing.

What do our students have to say about Leti & Kenji?


“Leti is the new ‘Rich Dad’!”

Dr. Weilan J.

“I’ve loved learning from Leti and Kenji about real estate! They have a complementary style of teaching that’s easy to understand, even if you’re a beginner like I was. It’s like learning about cashflow from Robert Kiyosaki himself. Leti is the new ‘Rich Dad’! “I found the time to invest by creating a ‘not-to-do list’ of activities (such as watching Real Housewives or scrolling through social media) and focusing on what really brings value to my life: my family, my clinical career, and now real estate investing.”


“Achievable for doctors with families”

Dr. Patrick T.

“Leti and Kenji’s system makes real estate investing easily achievable for doctors like me who have families and work full time. You can be a full-time physician and a part-time real estate investor, and still enjoy great returns and tax benefits. “Leti and Kenji are outstanding, caring mentors who have the knowledge and tools to help you get started on this exciting journey!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to take this course if I already took Zero to Freedom?
Watch this video to see Leti & Kenji's answer...

Accelerating Wealth is hosted on the Kajabi platform. When you enroll, you’ll be sent a login and password to the course. All the modules will be immediately available to you. You can start right away!

There are 5 modules. Each module consists of short, pre-recorded video lessons accompanied by useful downloadable resources like worksheets and interview guides. Because the video lessons are pre-recorded, you can watch them whenever you have time.

There will also be open office hours with our experienced coaches. You’ll also be able to get support from your fellow students, coaches, and Leti and Kenji in the course Facebook group.

You will have lifetime access to the modules, including all future content updates.

Each module consists of several bite-sized training videos that add up to roughly 2-3 hours of content a week.

None of it requires a full day of work like you spend in the hospital or day job. Many of our students have continued to work full time as they build their real estate portfolios, too.

And, here’s the good news: because you have lifetime, on-demand access to the course material, you will always have time to take the course! There’s also no such thing as “falling behind” when you can go at your own pace. So if your schedule changes in the middle of taking the course…that’s no problem, because you can come back to it whenever you’re ready. You’ll also have lifetime access to our agents and vendors lists. All of it will be waiting for you, like Adele.

Leti and Kenji will be available in the Facebook group answering questions along with our specially trained coaches. And during this launch, Leti and Kenji will be available in all live Q&A sessions where you can get answers to your questions on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

YES! You can either take the course with your significant other, partner, spouse or by yourself. Many of our students include their partners…but just as many go solo (and achieve great things too).

No matter what, you’ll have support from the course community, which we intentionally cultivate to be kind, generous, and supportive.

If your partner will be joining you, they will share a Kajabi login with you. But for the Facebook group, have them request access and include your name when they fill out the Facebook questions.

Through our connection with CMEfy, students needing CME will have an opportunity to reflect on the course as well as knowledge gained and engage with Internet Point of Care activities to reflect and earn CME via CMEfy.

Is this course right for me though?
Should I take the course?

We're glad you asked. We only want you to take Accelerating Wealth
if you feel like it's the perfect fit for you.

If you’re a doctor or high-income professional who already knows you want to invest in STRs-but don’t know how to do so confidently-this is the right course for you. That’s exactly what you’ll learn how to do in Accelerating Wealth.

Or, maybe you’re a doctor or high-income professional who is new to the STR idea, but you’re not where you want to be financially at this point in your life, and/or you’re suffering from burnout (yes we said the ‘b’ word). If you’re ready, willing, and eager to try something new (and possibly go outside your comfort zone), this is the right course for you.

Investing in just one short-term rental can bring in
life-changing cashflow...in the first year of owning it​

Accelerating Wealth = your accelerated path to STR confidence.

Instead of piecing together free, unvetted STR investing techniques and advice from across the internet, guessing, making mistakes, crossing your fingers, and lighting a candle to your Great-Great Aunt Hilda that everything goes well. Take the course that will set you up for success. 

You can create a life you love for you and your family!
