I'm an IT Business consultant that spends most of his time away from my lovely place. I can find the heart to let it go because I love the location, the neighbourhood and how comfy it is. I can walk or take the metro anywhere I need to go and their is nothing like waking up and walking down the street to any number of welcoming cafes to have a coffee and enjoy free wifi.
I recently heard of airbnb and realised that even though, I am travelling abroad more often, I dont have to give up my place. Instead I can let other business professionals like myself use it. At the same time, I can meet new people from around the globe and teach them about all the things they might normally miss living in Montreal.
