How I Built My Six-Figure Airbnb Empire (with No Cash, Credit, or Properties)

I want you to close your eyes and imagine having a thriving, successful business, earning your first million dollars – only to lose it all.

That happened to me.

My name is Brian Page, and I guess you can say I have the ultimate “Rags to Riches to Rags Again” story.

Back in the day in the early 2000s, real estate was very profitable. I made my money fixing and selling houses way before any of those popular “flipping house” shows were on TV.

And like so many in real estate, I rode that wave until…

…it all went bust and I lost EVERYTHING.

Not only had my personal residence been foreclosed on, I lost all of my rental properties and basically had to walk away from everything I had.

I didn’t have enough money to pay for the mortgage on the house I was building, so needless to say, my credit was ruined and I had no cash.

But the the real low point was yet to happen.No Money Down Real Estate Investor

I remember the feeling I had when I got to the point where I was looking for spare change in my car to just to be able to buy something on the fast food value menu.

That’s how bad things were.

Not only that, I had to figure out how to start over in one of the worst economic downturns in recent history.

No Cash, No Credit… Now What?

Here I am with no cash and no credit scrounging for change in my seat cushions. You can’t get more down and out than that.

Maybe you’ve been there or maybe you’re there right now.

I had no choice but to swallow my pride and do the one thing I never wanted to do, so I went looking for a job, any job, that would pay the bills.

Eventually I found myself working a job I hated where I was working 50+ hours a week.

After a while I found myself asking… What’s next?

I knew I couldn’t stay in a job I hated for the rest of my life. I was bored to tears and began asking myself… what’s next?

So I started thinking…

I could take a “leap of faith,” start all over again, and design my perfect business.

Now remember, I didn’t have the ability to borrow money because my credit was ruined.

I couldn’t afford a huge start up cost, so whatever I did, needed to be done on a shoestring budget.

More importantly, I needed to have a business that provided me with consistent monthly cash flow.

I knew I didn’t want the kind of business where you had a big win and then had to go out and do it all over again just to keep afloat.

I also knew I didn’t want to do something that was trading dollars for hours.

But one of the things I knew I did want was to be able to be fully mobile, so I could run my business from anywhere in the world that had a WiFi connection.

How I Accidentally Got Started on Airbnb

At the time, I was working a 50+ hour a week job and was renting an apartment with a roommate who gave me notice that he was moving out.

I had heard of Airbnb and had done some research on them.

With that I started thinking…

I could either go find a roommate, or, I could try out this Airbnb thing.Airbnb room

So I listed the spare room in the apartment I was renting on Airbnb and in a few days I started getting some bookings.

From listing this one little room on Airbnb, I made enough money to pay my entire rent and eventually all my utilities. I was able to pocket the money from my “job”.

How cool is that!

About a month later, I decided to see how much money I could make with Airbnb. With that, I started to look for my next property.

I went down the street, found a place just a few blocks away, and found a one bedroom apartment. I spoke with the owner, told her what I wanted to do, and to my surprise, she said yes.

After listing that room, I began partnering with property owners.

From there, I figured out a system to automate my entire business, so I only needed to work a few hours each week to manage everything.

During my first year I made over $300K “collecting properties” on Airbnb, in which I figured out and developed a system to build a multi-property portfolio on Airbnb.

I am now the creator of the world’s only program that teaches people how to build an Airbnb empire, which I’ll tell you more about later.

What is Airbnb?Airbnb App

Airbnb is a service allowing anyone to host paying guests in a spare room or an entire property for a nightly rate just like a hotel, regardless of who owns the property.

✔ Airbnb handles the payments, IDs, calendar, listings, etc. for a very small fee

✔ You don’t have to screen people or find guests

✔ Airbnb pays you directly

✔ Airbnb has protections for you and your home

✔ No experience or technical skills needed

✔ Anyone can do this. Young, old, retired.  Doesn’t matter.

✔ Getting started is a lot easier than you think

✔ You can do this in your spare time even if you’re working 50+ hours a week

✔ Get the best reward from the lowest risk

When I got started, I had bad credit, very little cash, and using other people’s properties to list on Airbnb, I built a business without having to own the real estate.

Most people are under the impression that they need to own property to list on Airbnb. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

I’d say that’s a win-win. Wouldn’t you agree?

Building an Airbnb Empire

As I began adding properties, I discovered some great perks to having an Airbnb business, and also developed a proven system to automate everything.

This system has not only allowed me to maximize my profits, but has allowed me to be as hands off as possible allowing me time to have the freedom to travel anywhere.

As I began adding properties and growing my Airbnb business, I’ve discovered:

✔ A proven way to locate owners who will let you list on Airbnb

✔ How to find the most profitable properties that will have you owning the most in the shortest amount of time

✔ How to get owners to gladly let you use their properties and why would they don’t want to do this themselves

✔ How to handle restrictive leases with “no subletting” clauses

Build Your Airbnb Empire in 7 Steps

My friends became curious about what it is I do. So I explained my Airbnb business and how I began collecting properties and listing them on Airbnb.

Needless to say, they were intrigued and wanted to learn more.

As I began teaching them what I knew, I said to myself, “Brian, you need to start writing this stuff down.”

As I mentioned earlier, I am now the creator of the world’s only program that teaches people how to build an Airbnb empire.

I developed the “BNB Master Class” which is an 8 week program that teaches you how to build your Airbnb Empire in 7 Steps.

It’s a proven step-by-step formula that works regardless of what your experience level is or if you’ve never been an Airbnb host, and it will have you earning your first Airbnb profit in a matter of weeks.

You don’t need a lot of money to get started. This training shows you how to get up and running with your first property on a shoestring budget. You’ll be surprised at how little to no money you’ll need.

You’ll also learn the secret sauce to booking “orphan days” for maximum profit. (Orphan days are the days during the week where a property is normally vacant.)

Best of all, I’ve developed a system to automate the entire business, so that you can run it from anywhere in the world with a smartphone, tablet, or laptop that’s connected to the internet.

By the end of the 8 weeks, you’ll have not only listed your first property, but you’ll have located your second listing.
