On this day, 13th Sept 2019 - I hosted my first guests on Airbnb Experiences. I was such a novice & had priced my experience at just $6 per person because I desperately wanted someone to book it!
Within a day of publishing my street art experience, it was booked by a group of 12 people and that too from Airbnb's photography team, Delhi office. They had booked my experience as they wanted to connect with their team leader who was visiting them from San Francisco. I welcomed these guests with flowers as I wanted to tell them how grateful I was and what this first booking meant to me! This incident has given me so much confidence. From that day onwards, I wake up with gratitude every day!
As a small business accountant, with very few clients back then, I often felt low on confidence and financially insecure. Airbnb provided a platform and rebuilt my confidence. Hosting on Airbnb helped me earn more, and brought in such great guests for me to showcase something I loved doing i.e. exploring street art & storytelling.
4 years later, I’ve been lucky to be able to contribute ideas by being a part of the Host Advisory Board member at Airbnb. Can I be any more fortunate and indebted to the stars?!
Airbnb is one of the best things that happened to my life on this day, 4 years ago. Only upward and higher from there, today, tomorrow, every day!
What a wonderful story of gratitude! Thank you for sharing it with all of us. It’s refreshing to hear the positive things Airbnb brings to our lives and livelihoods.
