In Episode 28 of The Side Hustle Show I sit down with Scott Bold to discuss how Airbnb bookings pay the majority of his rent. Just imagine, if a side hustle could cover your living expenses, would that give you a sense of freedom from your job? Airbnb.com is the peer-to-peer accommodations site where you can rent a room from a local resident instead of paying for a hotel. And similarly, you can rent out space in your house to out-of-town guests, and make some great side hustle cash doing so! On top of that, it's a cool opportunity to meet people from around the world and show off your home town. Subscribe to The Side Hustle Show on iTunes! Subscribe to The Side Hustle Show on Stitcher!
