Despite being a fan of the app AirBnB (or more accurately, the effects it’s had on the world), today was really the first time I’d ever used it. I’d been to AirBnB’s before, definitely, staying with my girlfriend or with my family, yet this one was me booking everything for myself. It was awesome, everything cost a fortune less than a hotel room, and I’d be able to make it to Charleston to check in with my job.
I’ve learned that that company went through hell and back to get itself grown and profitable. Apparently, the founders resorted at one point to selling cereal called “Obama O’s” during the 2012 election. Yet, they came out, and with my cheap room, I’m very, very happy that they did.
