Wayan Suyadnya – Airbnb the Guest House
6 months ago · 45:57
Tell us if you’ve heard this story. Dana Robinson, co-host of this podcast, decides to sell everything and move to Bali on a one-way ticket. He sets off in search of adventure, and peace of mind. And the very first stop once he lands is at a guest house in some local’s backyard. The owner of that home is a guy named Wayan. Wayan Suyadnya is the kind of guy you often hear about on this podcast….he runs a business, he has a couple of side gigs, he does short term vacation rentals, and has hustled his way out of poverty to be a successful entrepreneur. Wayan dropped out of college to open a restaurant, became a self employed tour guide, and pioneered the Airbnb business in his area. He took his family from being subsistence rice farmers who couldn’t afford a motor scooter to owning 35 motor scooters that he rents, multiple properties, and a life that he controls.
