I am a young entrepreneur and use AirBnB to help me with my rent. It is nearly impossible to get funding for artists who would like to launch their career. Having AirBnB allows me to have a second room where I help pay for my rent and use my room as a studio/artist space. Without this I wouldn't be able to afford to live. Please realize that thousands of people rely on AirBnB to make rent and welcome people into their city -- all which help local economies. Thank you for your time.
