Like buses, ideas seem to come in twos. I read last week that Airbnb are looking to expand the services they offer to guests to make trips through them a more curated experience, hosted by local people. And then a reader of the newsletter sent me details of “With Locals”, a service whereby you can enlist the services of a local in a city or area you’re going to be visiting, to enhance the experience. Services provided typically include preparing meals, demonstrating local crafts and skills, or acting as a guide to the area.
I mention it for two reasons:
1. The idea of employing someone through with locals or Airbnb might appeal.
2. You might want to earn extra money by becoming a paid associate.
