Some of you may know that Heather & I are proud owners of a few Airbnb properties which have definitely had a positive impact on our pocketbooks and that is exactly why I was so excited to talk to our guest today all about how she made it into a career.
Today’s guest, Zeona McIntyre went from a $12 an hour retail job while side-hustling by renting out her place on Airbnb to owning her own Airbnb property to now having an entire vacation property management company that she runs while traveling around the world.
The best part of the deal is that you don’t even need to own a home to make this work for you!
In this first of a two-part series, we discuss Zeona’s backstory of how she got started, tips and tricks for the beginner, and if she had it to do over again what would she have done differently.
