Hello, Because of AirBNB I was able to retire from my teaching career and let a young adult begin his or her career. We will have a supplemental Income with renting our space with AIRBNB which makes this possible. We have found that guests shop and eat locally which helps the local economy. We do pay a business tax that help our country. AirBNB's web-site is extremely user friendly and organized so well. I do feel like I have partnered with AirBNB and they made a big difference in the way I get to spend my future years!.
