AIRBNB – POPULAR IN SA
Hirsch’s Strubens Valley recently held an Entrepreneurs Morning where the guests were treated to delicious coffee and muffins on A winter’s morning. The guest speaker for the morning was Louise da Silva from Eagle Cottage @ Just a Breeze. Louise spoke about the benefits of being a host on AirBNB and explained the origin of this concept. Two young design students from San Fransisco needed extra money to pay their rent and decided to rent out their loft during a conference with just three air mattresses. From there, AirBNB was born and has grown into a multi million dollar organization worldwide. These days anyone can become a host on AirBNB if you can offer accommodation, from a room in your house, a cottage, a castle or even a tree house . With a bit of initiative and willpower anyone can make much needed extra cash these days. Guests were then invited to introduce their own start-up businesses and valuable contacts were made.
