Hello Misfit Nation! I am excited to bring a special weekend episode of the Misfit Entrepreneur. Occasionally, I find something I truly enjoy and when I do I like to share it with you. In 2021 I’ve started listening more to the immersive shows on Wondery. If you haven’t checked it out, you need to do so.
Recently, I was able to connect with them and they offered to share a small sample of one of their new shows with the Misfit audience and that is what I want to share with you in this short special episode because it focuses on one of my favorite topics – the stories and successes behind some of the most inspiring businesses, creative innovators and intrepid entrepreneurs.
Secret Sauce is one of Wondery’s newest series, hosted by John Frye and Sam Donner. First up, they’re diving into the company that revolutionized how we vacation, travel, and even how we trust other people... Airbnb.
In 2008, Air Bed and Breakfast launched at SXSW (South by Southwest) with high hopes of becoming an alternative to overbooked hotels...but they ended up with just two people booking a stay...and one of them was a co-founder of the company. How did Airbnb persevere through adversity to become a company that would forever change the way we think about travel? What was their magic - their secret sauce - that made them such an unlikely success story? And what lessons can we learn from them?
