I’ve personally stayed in many Airbnb places in the States and overseas as well. So when I learned that Brian Page has built an entire investing business around Airbnb, I knew I had to have him as a guest on my podcast.
A note about Brian’s background: In the early 2000s, he was making a killing in real estate investing, but like many others, he suffered great losses in the real estate crash of the mid-2000s. He went from millionaire status to being deeply in debt in a very short time.
That was when he set out to find a NEW way to earn income from real estate. Starting over, he launched a profitable Airbnb business without debt, mortgages or even owning his own properties. He earned over six figures in his first six months using Airbnb and over $300k his first year.
From a small beginning, he began to expand his listings, and then discovered how to automate the whole thing. The next step was to teach others how to do the same thing. Now Brian has students all over the world who are making an amazing amount of income from controlling their own listings—without owning any property.
In this episode, Brian explains the background of Airbnb, how that company got started and its underlying principles. This concept of staying in homes rather than hotels has literally changed the way people travel by making travel much more affordable while providing a unique travel experience.
I’m super excited to announce that Brian and I are putting together a free webinar to give you a lot more inside information about how you can get started in this unique type of real estate.
