James was looking to make some much needed extra income after an e-commerce business went south that left him in debt. He stumbled across Airbnb but knew next to nothing starting out. But he soon found LearnBNB and learned everything he needed to get started with hosting.
But he quickly found that his income was limited due to the number of properties he personally owned. With some trial and error and using what he learned through LearnBNB, James created a way to host on Airbnb while using other people’s properties. It was a real win-win because I only got paid when the owners got paid.
Fast forward a year and a half, and he was earning a six-figure income while managing over 40 listings and helping other hosts all over the world to manage listings for other people the same way that he had. He later reached out to Symon so that we could impact more hosts and help more people to take advantage of this incredible platform to earn additional income using what they already had — spare space.
