Publisher's Summary

The secret to earning a six-figure income without having to work your back off.

When you think about living your dream life, what comes to mind? Does it include spending most of your waking hours in front of a computer, answering emails from your demanding boss, and only living it up on weekends? Or, does it consist of owning your own time, pursuing things you’re passionate about, and still earning more than enough to indulge in your favorite activities?

Unless you’re certifiably insane, you definitely answered the latter. Who wouldn’t want to get away from the drudgery of employee life and become the boss of their own life? This is easier said than done, though.

There’s safety and comfort in knowing you’ll receive a fixed amount of money every month, regardless of how much your employer earns. But, this also means that you won’t get paid any more than your fixed salary, and the majority of your week belongs to the company. Why not explore something different, something that gets you closer to achieving the life of your dreams? Like starting your own business.

One of the most ideal businesses for those who are just starting out is Airbnb hosting. If you have a property investment, a vacant room, or even just an extra bedspace, you can become an Airbnb host.

In fact, more than four million people are currently doing it, and Airbnb says it will need millions more in the coming years. As the world opens up again, and demand for travel picks up, it’s the perfect time to jump into this industry. With insider knowledge from a successful long-time Airbnb host, you can skip over the trial and error, and go directly into doing what works.

In How to Start a Successful Airbnb Business, you will discover:

  • A detailed walkthrough of the fundamentals of running an Airbnb business - from conducting market research to being the ideal host
  • How to set up your business legally and choose the right type of business structure for your specific needs
  • The winning formula to hosting successful listings that will keep the clients coming
  • How you can have more control over who rents out your property - for your own safety and your property’s - using this special Airbnb feature
  • An honest look at the perks and the downsides of being an Airbnb host, so you know exactly what you’re getting into
  • Additional money-making options from Airbnb - how you can boost your income without having to buy more property
  • How you can remove yourself from your day-to-day business operations and still enjoy the benefits and reap the profits

And, much more.

In any business, there’s no such thing as a risk-free venture. The nature of business itself involves taking calculated risks to gain a desired reward. And, what could be more desirable than being able to quit your nine-to-five, have control of your own time, and earn more than you did at your day job?

Your dream lifestyle awaits; you just need to take the leap.

If you want to leave your old life behind and start living your best life with your very own business, then scroll up, and click the “buy now” button right now.

This guide will teach you all you need before

Investing in airbnb property or renting out one of your extra rooms can be very lucrative. Although it offers a lot of perks, it’s as simple as posting your listing and waiting for the bookings to come. There’s a lot more to it. This guide will teach you all the ins and outs of running your own airbnb. It provides concrete advice that you can actually apply and not just abstract, useless information. This is the first book I’ve gotten on the topic so I can’t compare it with any of the other books that are available but honestly I think this book is enough. It covers a wide range of topics all related to airbnb and gives enough details on each aspect.

Great Book for Air BNB starters

4 years ago, I was a airbnb host for a couple of months.. did a lot mistakes especially (not realizing it though). the book you’re looking it is very comprehensive and covers many aspects of renting out short term rentals. a lot of the advice on the internet I read before this book was very vague and hard to get.. unlike this book with very comprehensive content

finally

I got 2 other books on airbnb before getting this one and honestly I couldn’t finish either one of them. Both of them were rambling on the same things over and over (the same things could have said with less half the words)... THIS BOOK however is PACKED with value from the beginning to end! Every chapter is filled with necessary and valueable information that is going to be useful for you in your business so if you’re looking for a quick way to get your hands on the best info on the topic then this is your book!

Authentic

There are a lot of books out there on this topic - most of them by authors who’ve never been a host before - however this one isn’t the same. Right from the start you know it’s written by not just authors but actual businessmen. That’s the difference right there. The knowledge from this book won't come only from theory or what the author thinks are the right ways, but it comes from actual experience and what they know for sure is the right ways to do things in an airbnb business. So you’re robbing yourself if you keep looking instead of just picking this book

This is it. This is the book

If you’re ready to start your own short-term rental but you’re unsure where to begin, then look no further. Read or listen to this book front to back (twice if you have to) and you’ll gain both the knowledge you need but also the confidence you need to believe in yourself and actually take action on it!

Finally!

Finally a guide on Airbnb that is actually worth listening to! Have bought several of these books on Airbnb and I couldn’t get past the first chapters on any of them. This one was interesting from the start. If you’re going to get yourself a book that is not only informative but also entertaining then you have found your book!

Lots to learn here

First of all, the narration was on point so good job there. Second of all, this book is filled with good info about the topic and there’s so much you can learn about short-term rentals even for seasoned landlords. Now if you are just starting out then this book is especially beneficial for you. I can assure that you will have confidence starting your business at the end of this book.

Starting out in the UK and found this super useful

I wasn’t sure what to expect being a US focused read. However it applies across countries and I found the contents interesting, helpful and comforting for a first venture into Airbnb

International

Thought this book was going to be the usual ‘’us-only’’ type since most similar business books I’ve read so far have been like that. Well 95% of the book is applicable internationally so thats great. There are some US stuff but that’s understandable. Anyway great book
