"You run at one percent capacity. You just need one person's home that i don't pay for right and then you rented out somebody and i take it just a commission so the hotels were really deep shirt during govan. If so i think Airbnb actually a much. Bigger advantage coming out of kobe and they're absolutely going to destroy the hotel business moving forward not to say that the hotel business won't exist anymore. I definitely think hotels still be relevant but the market will definitely shrink incrementally over time and airbnb. Vr be owned companies. like that. though. I do think personally airbnb will take most of the share for other reasons that we can talk about a few they're going to entirely dominate. I think brian's just getting started all. The founders is still there mid thirties all the founders are still in the business. None of them have left and a lot of their main executives are still working and executives who have left. The company didn't even go to another company. Belinda left to take care of her kids because she's never seen him for ten years. She wants to work life balance so she just left work and joe's the day the first employee the higher did the same thing. They didn't go to competitor. No yeah i think is just getting started. Yeah i mean those are all solid points very well thought out. I completely agree right. The one percent vacancy they could have ninety nine percent vacancy and they would be just fine because it's they don't have any of the costs associated with it plus the long term. You know when you become a customer your customer five and you're going to be using them for the next fifty sixty seventy years. Yeah and you're in. You're in right now and you're not going anywhere and the bottom line is when you think about a company like in airbnb as you said the competitive moat that exists as a result of things. Like what you've just mentioned is it's awe-inspiring really if you think about it. Because it's not easy to do what they're doing. Relative to other entities in companies that are out there therefore skies the limit to what they can do so now that we know some of the reasons why you believe in this company especially over the long term in thirty forty years or even twenty years. You talked about incremental decrease in hotels. What are some other things. If you're going to polish your crystal ball and look into the future what are some other things. Pick any time period that you want but what would be interesting for the audience to learn about the big picture vision because right now i mean a lot of people use it. It's big now. How much bigger could it get. And what don't we know yet. If you're gonna make any big bold predictions what. What do we not know that that you think might happen fascinating question and this is something i still think about to this day. Don't the best answer to. Because even i asked myself. How big can this business really good. Here's what i will say..

"And the reason is because the infrastructure cost to actually start when these businesses is not as expensive. It's probably in the few millions of dollars. Tens of millions. Maybe which is not a lot in startup land gad. No that sounds like a lot of money. Startup landed isn't but airbnb has a very different model. Which is global infrastructure. And the reason this is so competitive and why it's very difficult to go up against somebody like airbnb is because it's their hosts in homes across the whole world. Somebody in copenhagen or rather. Let's go new york can't start an airbnb for people in new york because tourist or visiting are not gonna go to that website and go there. They'll just use airbnb regardless so it's really difficult for regional people to just build something so you need a lot of money to build something as robust as airbnb. That's why we don't see a lot of competitor. That's the first thing. The second thing is most of the people who actually visit their their website do so organically which is super fascinating. They don't go there from an ad somebody else that they know. Everybody knows somebody who has been airbnb. It's kind of crazy at this point if you don't know somebody so the second your audit your lifetime values the customers pretty much a lot of money especially when you're young and you start to use the european be. It'll start with like okay. What's the cheapest thing what i did when i went to louis conference okay. What's the cheapest thing in columbus thirty bucks on a couch. Kill the but then as we get older and our income increases. Write your story. Now it's starting to turn into okay. I could probably afford one hundred bucks today. Let's go to something a bit nicer right. So our lifetime customer value increases but since her condition into airbnb so young now. We don't really think of hotels unless we conference and the hotel the conference at the hotel other than that. I would never use a hotel for the most bar and the third piece is. Where are we going from here. Where dot competitive moat. Where do i see the business going. A lot of people said that airbnb did really badly and covert. I don't actually grew witha. Did they do as as good as two thousand nineteen obviously not right because travel went down our two thousand eighteen where they're profitable but two hundred million right but that's a different thing right so let me address. That quickly is air. Companies like airbnb billion amazon did the same thing defer profits on purpose they deferred prophets on purpose. Because they're going for the bigger play amazon's a good example of this. They were profitable until five years ago. And they've been in business. it's nineteen ninety-six. But the reason the defer the prophets is they don't to pay taxes on it and so that they can reinvest it into the big machine. And that's what airbnb has done so i wouldn't look too much the financial statements we're looking at a high growth tech startup but the other piece though is even if arab didn't do well to your point right in two thousand and twenty during covert. The hotels did a lot worse And the reason is because airbnb doesn't have any real estate costs besides thrown office. They don't own all of these homes you own the home. I own the home. Everyone else does hotels on their own. Real estate call the leases on those things exploded. You cannot operate a hotel at twenty percent capacity because the lisa so expensive your staff is so expensive. No you need to be eighty ninety fifty sixty percent capacity to even run a profitable business..

"Is he said. That's why i was so important for us to get that relationship. The government early because we work with the government to figure out what laws we can put in place so for example in certain parts of the world. The airbnb has a relationship with the government where host cannot host for a certain number of days on airbnb. So let's say. During the year they could only host sixty days out of the three sixty five to prevent housing price increases. So there's a lot of collaboration that's happening between the governments. And that's what airbnb did really well versus uber. Where they kind of just attacked everybody all. At once a aggressively expanded and a lot of people started banning ubuntu led to let chaos but an airbnb case. I felt there really smart about it. I think the only way they're going to get to new york at this point and barcelona is to wait for the old officials to this and away for the young people to take over an office. Yeah man i'll tell you i. I lived in venice beach and add a house. That was very near the water and mice. Street was a walk street and one by one. It seemed like every house on the street became an airbnb property. And be honest i do. I don't know if it had a direct. I mean the the prices were going up no matter what but it did something. This is an interesting piece is. It changed the neighborhood in so i think that's the other thing that plays into this that we all have to be cognizant of aware of is when somebody doesn't own a house they're gonna either treat a different act different but it also interesting to right. You got different people from all over the world. So there's i look at it from a positive perspective but i know some people in my neighborhood. Were happy that there was this revolving door of people. I mean not to get super macabre but there was actually somebody that stayed in airbnb across the alley from me in somebody ended up passing away jacuzzi. It's like when random things happened like that. It's super scary. So obviously these are things that a company like airbnb has to be aware of but for somebody listening right now who maybe it was like. Okay i don't have a big giant unicorn style startup. But i do have a startup or i do have a company. What are some principals. We've already mentioned some of motor. Some that could apply across the board. The airbnb does really well which you talked about design you talked about getting to know the customers in serving your customers. These are foundational. Things that i think are really really important. You talk about not waiting in being reactive when it comes to legal issues being proactive shaking. Before there's a problem so you can actually coordinate collaborate with the powers that be what are some other best practices that we could apply as business owners as startup founders. That we can learn from airbnb. Yeah i think the first one is make a lot of noise without making a lot of noise. So what does that mean that means. Don't be shy to be loud on your marketing. Don't be shouted. tell people who you are. What your vision is what you're trying to accomplish but at the same time don't step on your competitor shoes and i think a lot of people make this mistake or when it's david versus goliath which most startups are david. Trying to goliath. They always go. Okay this is who we are and we're better than glide glide socks global. That's how i think the game should play an airbnb. Actually this mistake early and they changes are languaging lawyer..

"For evening. I don't i'm not a morning. Donate guy we'll do like a midnight run to get donuts. That's why i'm on a bit of a diet now just in preparation for you. Arriving so he could have some dotads. It's dotads for late night stack and then robin for breakfast. We gotta figure out the rest but at least we know that. So that if you advertise too much you'll have a waiting list of people while maybe this is the beginning of a new business so okay so obviously we've touched on a few things. There was like any business. There's gonna be road bumps clearly. A major road bump happened in two thousand twenty where basically no one was going anywhere and i think it was like ninety. One point was like ninety six percent of what were their hosts were evaporated so it was a massive massive layoffs like nineteen hundred people. Twenty five percent of their employees. It was not an easy time and not only that but they had to take care of their hosts and one thing that really impressed me is that they put two hundred fifty million dollars to their hosts to compensate them for all the cancellations that they got so. I thought that was a really nice thing to your point. We talked before you said they had to do that. Is the right thing to do. But let's go back earlier than that. What were some of the early speed bumps obstacles or things got in their way. And how did they overcome them. Yes lots of speed bumps along the way one in particular that. I can remember very fondly as i was reading. The book on airbnb is the doppler gang brothers so the double ganger brothers are a group of people in europe are not making this stuff up. I might not get the name exactly correctly but basically what they do. As whenever they see. Great idea in america they copied the idea scale it in europe and then forced the company in the us to buy them out at a huge multiple or else they have big competition in europe. So they did that with airbnb and it was a really difficult decision on whether or not brian should buy them out or just could flat out compete against them and he chose to compete..

"It's going to be a small service. We're going to focus on. The people like billy who wanna book. Vr build mexico. We'll just service him but the other ninety nine people. We just don't need them. They don't they don't need this. It's probably not for them. But bride from the get-go his thought process was and joe's in a fence. Whenever i brian i was employ. All three of them from the beginning. Their dream with airbnb was to get everyone to use it and the reason is because they were crazy. Kooks like you booking right they were just normal folks and san francisco and then one day the realize that the the hotels were booked and they needed to pay the rent so they said what and then joe had a crazy idea of renting out their house for like a day and then three people booked on craigslist or as a facebook group or something like that. There's a technology conference or something and was just so so busy in the bay area so it's just like okay now it's supply and demand and they were just capitalize on carry on correct and it was the experience that they had hosting these three people that change their life still friends with most of those people i believe on record and from experience said well. Everyone should experience wasn't even about the accommodation. Billy that's why original idea was around having breakfast with the host because it was the relationship that we were building with the people in the of course. The idea evolved since a lot of people. Just don't wanna stick around and talk to people which is fair but the idea. The core essence of european. Be from the get go was. How do we design this so that everyone can use it so the first piece that was different with airbnb was they had just had a bigger vision. Like one person could have a vision to start a business and scale coaching business. You have ten clients whatever and another one could say. How do we impact a billion lives. So it's the same thing with airbnb. They said a bigger vision so the bigger they played bicker and the thought process was geared towards it. That's number one number two. Is this idea of timing. So of course. I'm not gonna lie. When i say two thousand nine was probably the best time for airbnb. Start their business. A lot of people are listening now by wise to the best time to start a business. It's not when the global recession was and yes that is correct. The global recession was definitely bad for a lot of industries. But for airbnb was amazing. And i'll tell you why hosts were very open to putting their homes on airbnb. Because they needed to make ends meet. A lot of them lost their jobs so they were like okay. Let's just be hosts for airbnb. Let's see what happened. Because what's interesting about airbnb. Bill especially today. Airbnb does not have a demand problem. There's a lot of people want. Stay at every. Abe's everybody has a supply problem. Not a lot of people wanna be host so during the last recession to a decade ago because everybody boos started right at that inflection point a lot of people signed up as host because they wanted to make some money some extra cash. And that's what led to the big piece and then going back to the third point around customer inception..

"The normalized online dating a lot of people actually find their loved ones in that way. So i just love companies and founders. Who have a very unique insight on the market that most people don't think is true that ends up being sure in the future so most fast by companies like that in brian's josan nathan's is definitely an interesting story with airbnb. It totally is and to your point. It's not a new concept entirely but they normalized it. They made it more accessible in something that virtually everyone would feel comfortable. Doing what did they do to do that. How did they do that because actually it's not just that there were airbnb. I'm pretty sure. Vr b. o. Was was around before them and and others. I'm sure to what did they do differently. That set them apart and one thing for those who don't know it started as literally. The full name of the company was air bed-and-breakfasts which is why its airbnb. That was their first dot com air bed-and-breakfast so the obviously switch the name about a year in so i mean it's not just the name though. What did they do right to make it so accessible for all of us. It's a great question man. The way i think about. My interpretation of their success is the unique edge that they had. It's very unique. You don't see a lot of founding teams who have this is their founders were designers by trade so most of the time when you see successful startups in ceos most of them are technical. They have computer science backgrounds. They worked in software. But brian and joe actually went to the rhode island school of design like they were designers by trade. That's what they did and they went to work in and design. If you had asked brian what he wanted to do in life said he wanted to work at disney right. That's what he wanted to do. But nathan on the other hand was one of the best software engineers at the time and they knew each other. I think it's they met through mutual friend or something but basically the advantage that the founding team had is the really looked at travel from a design perspective. What does that mean. So something like a vr lease at the time was more okay. We're like listing site kind of like craigslist. Okay billy lester home if you want but your home there and we make margin on the marketplace but what they did it think about the airbnb did is how do we get more people on the platform at scale. What leads to someone's decision to a put their home up and also be from the other perspective as well somebody to pay to trust that and a big piece of airbnb success within that design process not break dunks. Lot of layers there. Is this idea of trust. Airbnb from the get-go had a massive truss team ahead of the trust. Brian armstrong and building coin viewers later. That obviously exited a huge huge huge multiple. But what airbnb understood..

It can become a challenge because then they get very busy. I think we know. Obviously self-cleaning isn't scalable buffer. Where we're at now with our schedules. It works sound like a great fit. Yeah it works but like you said. I mean looking forward. I don't think it would be a long term solution for us but we've made a lot.

That from what i've heard it's primarily like a playground for the rich and famous. It's called to mexico. I've i've always wanted to learn about it and so it's awesome to be able to have you on the show. No i'm really excited about two may be the other side it to learn that you haven't heard as much about okay right on. So what's your connection to the city so during the whole time. I figured out that. I wanted to go and and move in and try somewhere different worker motley so we looked at places that we were able to really dive deeper into experience the culture but also. I'm a big nature guy and we want to be able to go to the beaches and go to snow taes and get out to the forest and stuff and and to really fit the bill for all of that. It has really everything you would want when you go to place vacation but also if you're looking to go longer term consistently have things to do day in day out and so like when you're working remotely obviously you know. I have a lot of friends. That are like kinda digital nomads. And everything else like that was the there are strong internet connection for you throughout your time while you're there or was it like setup for you'd be able to do that remote work i mean it's incredible out there to be completely honest. It's it's built for people that really want to go out there and actually start building a life out there. There's condos constantly popping up but for the most part restaurants on the beach cafes on the beach and then we had an airbnb that we were able to really improve the internet at and they're really focused on that stuff. You look at airbnb. You look at hotels. A lot of them will will actually include what their internet speed is to make. Sure that you're able to work remotely from there. It's definitely big priority for them. That's also even like when i travel. I'm always like working whether it's on the podcast on my blog or whatever so I love having that high speed internet. No it's crazy. Honestly like i had a lot of friends that would go down to beach clubs for the day and they sit there pay thirty bucks for a beach chair with food and drinks and they work from there the entire day. And it's a really cheap way to be able to get the internet. You need if you're going for a week and you just wanna be able to experience the culture and experience the environment while you're out there as well

"Recently i was scrolling through tick talk in the algorithms. We're working their magic. And they brought me to this video of this guy that was explaining how him and his wife made like seventy thousand dollars in one month pretty much. Almost one hundred percent passively from real estate investments. And when i heard this i was like. That's really cool like that's awesome. That's a lot of money but real estate investing. There's no way i'm anywhere near that. I mean i'm twenty four years old. I don't even own my own home to live in but that's cool. That's awesome for him. Maybe that's something that i'll get into one day. I know that. Recently i listened to episode five hundred of build your tribe were. My parents talked about real estate. Investments as a stream of income that they have and i was like cool. Maybe one day. When i'm in my late thirties. When i'm in my forties like that's a route. That i could go down but this video popped up on my tick talk for you page in it kind of sparked my interest so i was like all right. Let's see what else this guy has. Let's learn a little bit more about him. His name was michael dante and he posts tick toxin youtube videos mostly primarily around this idea of investing in real estate but his specific niche isn't commercial real estate or even rental properties but short term rental properties. And really even specifically within that niche. His expertise is an airbnb rental properties. Now if you have no idea what airbnb is airbnb short for air bed and breakfast his basically an app where you can rent out your home a portion of your home your guest home. You can basically rent out your space for people to come stam. I can tell you that myself personally. I almost exclusively stay in airbnb. He's i think of the last. Maybe fifteen trips. I've gone on fourteen of them. I stayed in an airbnb. And one time i stayed in a hotel. Airbnb is really increasing. Its popularity and this is in no way an advertisement for airbnb. But i think a lot of people recognize that for just about the same or maybe even a little bit less of a price. You can actually get a lot more with airbnb.

Lauryn volvo bam here if you used a travel rental service like virgo or airbnb recently. It's possible you were hit with a bit of sticker shock at booking time. The nightly rental fee is but one part of the equation with cleaning fees service fees and occupancy taxes. Jacking up the bill. Big time by hundreds of dollars per night in some cases and since these other fees aren't added until the end of the checkout process they can come as a nasty surprise to renters who feel they lured in by the low nightly rental fee. This change is partially due to changes in the way. These services are being used not that long ago vacation. Rentals found through these services were intended for backpackers broke college students and people who otherwise needed places cheaper than hotels to crash for a few days or months often this involved little more than a bedroom bathroom combo in an otherwise occupied home or temporarily unoccupied apartment though. Such rentals are certainly still available. The model has changed. Tremendously a may twenty twenty one. Business insider article reported that airbnb is average. Daily rates had grown by thirty five percent in the first quarter of two thousand twenty one compared to twenty twenty and as we'll see daily rates effect all the other charges down the line too many the fees are anything but clear cut the. Here's a breakdown of feeds. You can expect to pay i. There are those nightly fees these are set by the rental host each of whom has a slightly different way of setting the price for further article. This episode is based on how stuff works spoke with aaron turner who uses both airbnb and virgo to rent her cabin in tennessee. She said i know what my break. Even point is for the year and that gives me a base rate. I have to charge per night at so many nights rented per year from there. I have to determine what portion of the rate will go to online booking agents airbnb virgo trip booking dot com per night and account for that when pricing the room. She also factors in the costs of maintenance utilities booking software insurance permits and other normal business expenses then there are cleaning fees these are also set by hosts and typically are the same per length of stay whether you rent for one night or seven so cost efficiency really depends on the rental period enhanced five-step and more expensive cleaning protocols necessitated by cove in nineteen have made these more expensive and of course professional cleaning rates vary widely by location and the size of the rental next there are service fees meant to cover many of the costs of operating these services on its website. Airbnb explains that generally charges guests afi. That's less than fourteen point. Two percent of the total nightly fee plus the cleaning fee plus any additional guest fees. That's up dramatically from six point. Six percent as of two thousand sixteen and it can go as high as eighteen percent. The hosts themselves are generally charged. An additional three to five percent fee as well which mostly just covers the costs of credit card processing. Virgo has a similar service fee structure of roughly nine to fifteen percent. How stuff works also spoke with bourbeau representative allyson quam. She explained verbose traveler. Service fee varies. Depending on the cost of the booking generally the higher the reservation amount the lower the percentage of the fee additional fees like pet fees may apply as well depending on the specific circumstances of your rental but finally there are local lodging taxes. These are added to the bill where there are laws requiring vacation rentals to pay tax. How stuff works also spoke by email with vacation rental industry. Expert t. belt mason with rental scale up dot com. He said a few years ago. A lot of hosts were forgetting to pay local taxes. They were supposed to take them out of there. Airbnb revenues and transfer them to the local tax authorities under the pressure of municipalities. Airbnb has started collecting taxes directly from guests and sending the money to tax authorities. So guests may also see an increase in the overall cost of their airbnb as things are done more legally these days. These occupancy taxes are not set by the service but by the local government. They're often the same rates that apply to hotels in the area. So with all of these fees in place would it be cheaper overall to go to a hotel as opposed to a vacation rental. That depends a study by intercity. Bus company bust bud. Found that airbnb. Prices were better than hotels and seven of the twelve u. s. cities and in eight of the nine european cities. It looked at so the short answer. There is to do your research taking into consideration that the type of hotel and the type of rental you're looking at may not be directly comparable. Unfortunately there are some ways to save or at least make the most informed choice possible. How stuff works also spoke with an cross owner and operator of two airbnb rentals. She said the way to beat. The system is to essentially ignore the nightly rates posted on an airbnb listing and look instead at the overall rate. This is because airbnb at least gives higher ranking two properties that use their recommended pricing format which is often much less than what the market calls for. She says these hosts may then make up for the loss of revenue by charging exorbitant cleaning fees across said the key. If you're looking for an affordable airbnb is to plan to spend some time browsing properties and skipped to some of the properties further in the results. They may be a better overall deal but because they're not playing the right game won't necessarily see them in the top search results. Another way to save can be by cutting out the middleman and booking directly through the rental property. Though you'll have to seek out its website or phone number on your own and the booking may not come with services comparable to what companies like virgo and airbnb guarantee again. Be prepared to do some legwork. And.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Says Unilever, Ben & Jerry's Better Watch Out

"BDs movement Um and Unilever and Ben and Jerry's, for God's sakes, who eats that crap anyway? But I'm just moving on. So anyway, they've taken a very, very anti ice America move against the state of Israel, and, uh You have a law in your state? You've triggered it. There's a process that you're going through and you were saying something else. So Florida did it. Texas has done some similar in New York and 33 of the four biggest states of the country, and we all have pretty big pension plans. And since then Unilever's lost a lot and their stock price. And so Ben and Jerry's only represents a real small portion of the company. But for whatever reason, when they acquired Ben and Jerry's, they let them have their own kind of Social awareness Committee that makes these decisions. So Ben and Jerry's made the This decision, and they had the right to do it under the way the corporation structure, but it's really bad for Unilever. So I think they're going to have to do something to reel this in because it's just totally unacceptable, and it's going to hurt the company, the large the parent company with with with what they're doing, but it's totally ridiculous and we're going to bite back and I'll tell you we did this early in my tenure as governor against Airbnb. They tried something similar. We did it, we bit back. An Airbnb changed their tune. So I think Unilever is going to have to change their tune very shortly.

"Mrs stressing out reading this all right. The work can speaking of the work. And be so stressful. That asians have access to cool down rooms with dimmed lighting to create a soothing atmosphere for answering heroin calls and it can take a heavy toll. Some former agents say they suffer from vicarious trauma on the job. They tried to remember that. Everything that happens in life can happen in an airbnb. That perspective was drilled into new recruits during a twelve week training session just as nightclubs cannot eliminate sexual assaults and hotels cannot stop human trafficking. Airbnb cannot prevent bad actors from using its platform. The company says it. Safety agents are taught to prioritize customers in crisis yet many understood themselves to have a dual role to protect both the individual and of course airbnb is public image. According to some former agents insensitive cases they were encouraged to get a payout agreement. Signed as quickly as possible until twenty seventeen other insiders say every agreement came with a nondisclosure clause that bar the recipient from talking about what had happened making further requests for money or from suing the company that practice ended when the too movement showed how nondisclosure agreements were being used to shield high profile individuals and companies from Over allegations of misconduct airbnb replaced the nda section of its payout agreement with a narrower clause that says recipients can't discuss the terms of their settlement or imply at that. It's an admission of wrongdoing. A confidential documents seen by bloomberg businessweek shows that in recent years airbnb spends an average of about fifty million dollars annually on payouts to host and including legal settlements damage to homes safety agents. Who clean up only after disaster. Strikes say they felt like the unloved side of the department. According to a former agent the hardest part of the job was making peace with their role in keeping cases quiet and ensuring that victims and their families did not blame the company sometimes. They were told to prioritize less traumatic situations just because they involved a reality tv stars and others with big social media followings which made them berry uncomfortable in early two thousand sixteen the.

In some cases hosts used the platform to commit them in one october. Two thousand eleven incident an airbnb host in barcelona plied to american women who booked to stay at his home with alcohol then raped them when the women went to the police the next morning the host threaten to upload videos of the attack to the internet if they didn't drop the case according to local media reports police searched his apartment and found hundreds of similar photos of other victims. The man received a twelve year. Prison sentence airbnb. Which declined to comment about the case for this story. Paid the two women an undisclosed amount and banned the host for life.

Go ahead upload them yeah album they'll get taken down immediately in your ass is going to go to jail and get raped so this is like everybody's worst nightmare these stories it is. It really is by two thousand sixteen. The safety team was overwhelmed with calls many of them minor in nature an airbnb started training contractors in call centers around the world to handle the flood of complaints. Airbnb says that fewer than zero point one percent of stays result in a reported safety issue. But with more than two hundred million bookings year. That is a lot of trips with bad endings. And i did the math and if i did it right. That's around two million actually. I think it's two hundred thousand. That's around two hundred thousand as i said so. What a lot. That's a lot of issues with people safety. Yeah for sure. Only the most serious problems are transferred to the internal safety team.

The company's response and the settlement were reconstructed from police in court records and confidential documents as well as from interviews with people familiar with the case. The woman whose name was redacted in court documents and who asked through her lawyer not to be identified declined to comment so did her lawyer ben. Bright I think that's how you say it be our. It sure an airbnb spokesman said that the company doesn't have the power to keep stories out of the media and that despite the wording of the settlement agreement. The woman is able to discuss whether she holds anyone responsible. He adds that airbnb goal. Following the incident was to support the survivor of a horrific attack and that local political issues had nothing to do with. Its response now. Those are really pretty. Words support the survivor of a horrific attack. But not take responsibility of the company Well i mean this happens a lot as we will discuss road. There would be no company if they took responsibility for every incident that occurred in to be fair as we will talk about later. It is really hard to control. People may lane yet. This could happen anywhere. Well that's a good transition. The way airbnb has handled crime such as the new york attack shows how critical the safety team has been to. The company's growth airbnb is business. Model rests on the idea that strangers can trust one another. Yeah i know. I wasn't gonna laugh but in theory that you know we lived in a perfect world. That would be great lovely. Yes but as i said. People are the worst absolutely. If that premise is undermined it can mean fewer users and more lawsuits not to mention tighter. Regulation yup absolutely wouldn't be a bad thing right for all its importance. The safety team remains shrouded in secrecy. Insiders call it the black box but eight former members and forty five other current and former airbnb employees familiar with the team's role agreed to speak with anonymity for fear of reaching confidentiality agreements and they provided a rare glimpse into its operations internal struggles. Former team members say the job is a nerve wracking one bouncing the often conflicting interests of guests hosts and the company a former agent recalls quote.

"So you've thought a lot about this two sided marketplace about uber airbnb. Now at task rabbit. Tell us a little bit about your challenge at task rabbit right now coming in as ceo. You started how many months were way into the pandemic. We are about six seven months into the pandemic you. It's your first time being a ceo of a major company. Tell us what that was like. How did you think about starting your role building. Trust all while working remotely with a remote team while honestly it's a bit scary. It's a bit overwhelming. It was my first job as a ceo. And i knew that. I wouldn't be able to meet anyone in person. I mean. we were in depth of the pandemic nominee extroverts. So generally i. I love energy of people. I love meeting people on asking questions and getting to know them in even though you can do that over. Zoom it's as we all have learned over the past year and a half. It's really not quite the same. I did think a lot about trust. And what it means to build trust remotely and a lot of that would came down to is transparency and communication and being really upfront and direct with people and so the first part of that is going on a listening tour so we at the time had about two hundred fifty employees or so and i met with every single person one on one to sue here about what is important to them. What are they thinking about. Why are there concerns. What are they happy about. Who is their husband or their wife or you know. How many kids do they have. And it was really nice. I always think about culture as garden. Sort of let it go still grow but you may not quite love everything that is growing out there on. Sometimes there are some weeds. Any your tend to it. You gotta just be thoughtful about what that means and so another thing that i started doing almost immediately because i couldn't see people in person every monday. I record a video for about five or so minutes. Just letting folks know what i'm thinking about. What's important coming up for this week. What our numbers are looking like. What are some awesome wins that we had. What are some things. That maybe have not been working. And i really. We see a lot of strong positive feedback. So i think that that's been good.

Even even One from a child with one Neanderthal parent and one den, a Sovann parent, so maybe they were mixing breeds in there. The cave also contains sophisticated stone tools and jewelry at higher later levels, but no modern human fossils have been found there. That that at least gives them the idea. They said.

The number of amenities searched using allow pets that is in the they're looking for vacation properties that allow pets that filter on be jumped ninety percent compared to last year. So year over year, there was a ninety percent increase or growth in the amount of people that looked for vacation rentals that also included in the filter allows pets. So it is an increasing trend. It's a growing trend in the industry out. there. But yet, you just stated your case out there about how your what your policies are in how you're operating and you're doing fine which tells me there's a lot of people a lot of consumers out there. That are are still looking without pets I probably have one out of every ten inquiries. Asked me if they can bring their pets even though they have read it in my policy, say I try to? Talk about it's a small pedder can't travel without my pet. The probably one in every ten inquiries will ask me that and I just you know very nicely safe. Sorry. No. Yeah.

"Hey everyone and welcome to how I built. . This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and business leaders about how they're adapting to these difficult economic times and today show we're going to hear from Brian Chess the CEO and Co founder of Airbnb back in twenty sixteen, , we spoke with Brian's Co founder Joe Gebbie at, , and he told the amazing story of how they founded and built the company, , and if you haven't heard it, , be sure to check it out. . Now, , of course, , we are in a very different time and a few months ago Brian wrote a letter to the entire staff. . AIRBNB letting them know that twenty five percent of the company was going to be laid off. . This has been by far for us. . The most difficult thing that we've experienced since we started the company a dozen years ago and I think join us to talk about how starting airbnb basically this idea that like strange who live each other live with each other like that was the hardest thing we were ever GonNa do it was like pushing a rock hill and it turned out that trying to run a company that does travel preparing to go public in the middle of pandemic is about as hard. . And then doing all via Zoom Ios, , even more difficult. . I think that what people want right now <hes> just more fundamentally is connection is like the thing that we've always wanted we want connection to each other and now you have to fight for it. . You know you have to make a conscious effort for it get on the one hand I'm closer to some people I've ever been in my life probably closer to my life co-founders donate we talk all the time and when you're going through crazy periods of time, , it has a way of bringing you closer together but also has a way of making your bubble a little bit smaller and that's probably what's happened for me. . Yeah. . You <hes> you wrote a letter to your employees that is posted publicly that <hes> letter is was remarkable. . It was so transparent. . You had to lay off a quarter of your employees in May and you could see how painful it was for you to write that letter it was extremely transparent. . You described the process <hes> for how you had to make the hard decision <hes>. . But also you know that every employee would receive fourteen weeks of of pay plus Severinsen insurance for a year and they keep their laptops and there were resources to help the employees <hes>. . Kind of walk me through <hes>, , how you how you came to to write that letter and <hes>. . How you kind of dealt with that just emotionally. . Yeah <hes> there is no playbook. . To lay people off in that's the kind of thing that if there was a playbook, , you should never use it because the thing that people want more than anything. . They want humanity they want compassion and that means that you need to treat people like like people like individually not robotically you know when the crisis happened, , we felt in mid March it was pretty serious. . We spent twelve years building airbnb in the we lost eighty percent of business in eight weeks. . You know we're one of the success stories right and then suddenly eight weeks there's. . All sorts of concerns articles willer survive never thought. . I'd read an article like that. . And we made a lot of hard decisions. . We I cut enormous cost. . We cut over a billion dollars plan marketing spend. . We quickly raised two billion dollars. . It's not easy to raise two billion dollars. . It's more difficult to raise two billion dollars from your travel company. . It's a pandemic and you've lost eighty percent business eight weeks. . The people get nervous thankfully <hes> we had some great investors step up <hes> but we had to do that deal that was like over the course of seventy two hours still like get the deal done it was the. . Fastest deal thing from have ever done and they've ever done. . So before that layup even happened, , I wrote a couple principals and I said, , we have a hunt handful of stakeholders we have to I. . Make sure that we act quickly in with all stakeholders. . Remind we're going to be remembered probably for how he handled this crisis Andy Grove this famous entrepreneur said bad comes destroyed by crisis good company survive crisis in great companies thrive or are defined by crisis I said, , we're not going to be the kind of company will be destroyed by this. . We're GONNA try to take each of our stack holders and when we got to the employees, , we basically had exhausted options having raised two billion dollars. . We came to the conclusion that we would have to lay off when we confronted to hard truth the hard truth number one was this that we did not know when trouble would return nobody did and the second thing we knew is that when travel would return, , it would look fundamentally different than the travel before the pandemic and so our business would have to look different and we'd have. To . change the shape of our business that we focused on, , and so then we just realized that we had to approach this with a sense of humanity said we should be as generous as we possibly could be in not less generous than that. . Why would you do that until we came up with a handful of things that we did to try to help people in this very difficult time We did a fourteen sevens puts a week pre or service we felt like well, , this is a health crisis people need health insurance, , and so we made sure that everyone had at least one year of health insurance even after ever getting laid off one of the things that I'm most proud of that our team came up with <hes> Joe in the team came to me and they said, , you know what? ? We have a recruiting team maybe we dedicate a percentage of the recruiting team to <unk> outplacement for the people
