passive airbnb turns 5

Passive Airbnb turned 5 years old last month!

Wow. 5 years just freaking flew by. I wrote, built, and managed contractors. 

Man, that was a lot of work. 

5 years- half a decade. It has a different ring to it. Half a decade.

My mission for starting Passive Airbnb was to provide good information on hosting and starting a business. I didn’t arrive at this mission organically – it was through trial and errors and undoubtedly  through my own efforts. I learned to take calculated risks ( I wish more schools would teach this skill earlier in K-12).

I think I accomplished all of that.

My realization for the next 5 years hit me in the face. Do I have what it takes in me for another 5 years? I want PA to have another 5 years but I don’t think I have it in me to actively manage and grow my blog (energy and time).

What’s the future of Passive Airbnb?

So, what’s does the next 5 years look like for Passive Airbnb?

Well, here is what I’m thinking now. 

I’ll scale back drastically, write a blog post here and there, and really turn it into a passive business venture. This means, I won’t be answering emails weekly and only respond when I want to. 

I might hire a virtual assistance again but doubtful because I don’t like managing people. 

My reflection of the last 5 years.

I think of life as stages. Some stages were requirements like going to school…And I’m ready for the next stage as I go search deep within myself . I want to find play that seems like work to someone else and care deeply about. I also realized that I can be overly driven and ambitious (maybe a little insecure) which could distract me from my inner core.

I’d like to think that after traveling for the better part of the last 4 years- I’ve arrived at some kind of conclusion. Direction. 

While I have no idea what this path will lead me but I know it’ll be my focus for the next 5 years. 

It’d be a great honor for me to know that my blog has helped over a MILLION people in their journey on starting a Passive Airbnb business.

When I find the next thing, I’ll be sure to let you all know. 

And I shall leave a quote: “Sometimes you need to go into the darkness to find light.”

Take care all.
