LATEST: Over 700 students in the first 24 hours! Course was last updated for March 2015.

Want to learn how to be an exceptional host without wasting HOURS of your precious time surfing and listening to stuff you don't need to know?

This course will FAST TRACK you to making money that you can spend traveling, renovating, paying bills, donating to charity or whatever you want to do with it.

In less than an hour you'll know if hosting is for you, how to get started accepting guests, and seeing the money role in.

  • Are you looking to welcome travellers into your home while earning extra income using space you already have?
  • Travel often and are looking to have your home occupied?
  • Use pets as a selling point! People miss theirs at home.

This course is designed for enthusiastic, flexible people who like meeting fellow travelers. Maybe your kids are off to college, you have an extra room (and tuition bills).
