Airbnb was my first foray into becoming a service provider in the new collaborative economy: an economy that enables individuals to provide unique experiences that cannot be replicated by large corporations (e.g. Marriott, Hilton, etc.)
I have gone to great lengths to surpass the expectations of my guests -- I even bought a crib! Fortunately, as you can read in the reviews, I've been very successful and feel rewarded that in addition to rental income, I have new friendships to boot!
I love living in the heart of Boston, only second to traveling. Airbnb allows me to share the magnificent city I call home with guests that benefit from my knowledge of the best places to eat and things to do!
