This article includes an interview with Riley, an experienced Airbnb host. Riley and his wife rent out a room with Airbnb to help offset the cost of their mortgage. I was really inspired by his story because this is a very practical side hustle that would be possible for a lot of people. It doesn't require a ton of time, although they do have to clean the room between guests.
If you're looking for a side hustle idea and you have a house that gives you the possibility to rent out a room or a unit, this may be something that you want to consider. It can be a great way to free up room in your budget, and for Riley and his wife, the downside has been minimal.
