I was thinking about flipping and I wasn’t feeling excited about doing it. I knew that I wanted to do an Airbnb, but I was thinking I have to take the emotion out of it because that’s what I love doing. It’s about going with your gut instinct as well. Once I made the decision, I knew I was going to make it work. I’m going to do an Airbnb. That’s what I want to do. And now I’m so excited about it.”
