The Team behind LearnBNB (formerly LearnAirbnb)
Symon is a co-founder of LearnBNB.
He is the main content contributor to the blog and also works directly with hosts–from those who are just starting out as well as hosts who have grown to 500+ listings.
Besides running LearnBNB, Symon writes at symonhe.com and is also a best selling instructor on Udemy.com and LinkedIn Learning, where he has taught over 200,000 students in real estate, finance, and startup related topics.
Previously, he was head of marketing analytics at the Panda Restaurant Group after serving as a senior financial analyst focusing on real estate underwriting efforts.
Before that, he was a global M&A manager for Ingram Micro, a Fortune 80 company. Prior to that, he worked on commercial real estate acquisitions at a private equity real estate fund, covering a wide range of asset classes across the western USA.
He graduated Magna Cum Laude in Computer Engineering and Economics from UC Irvine and received his MBA from Stanford University.
James is a co-owner of LearnBNB and the founder of the BNB Mastery Program
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.
