Airbnb hosting is proving to be a way to share my home with interesting guests from all over the world. As a member of the middle class, the extra income allows me to pay my mortgage plus additional costs involved with home ownership and still have enough left at the end of the month for everything else. Paying my fair share of tax on the income is expected. I am grateful to Airbnb for their entrepreneurial genius. I look forward to not only hosting but being an Airbnb traveler in the very near future.
