I became an Airbnb host to make ends meet, but I have had so much success being a host that I only work part time so that I can tend to my guests' needs. I live near Charleston, SC, and it's a great way for me to be able to enjoy my life and the great city I live in and help visitors do the same. Airbnb has provided me with a freedom to work as I please and make more than I would in any entry level position here. If it weren't for Airbnb, I would probably be stuck in a cubicle 40-50 hours a week being miserable and making less money.
