You may have read a few blogs on hosting by now, and you may have noticed that a lot of hosting advice is geared toward the “general” host.
However, there are really three major categories that hosts fall into—and depending on which kind of host you are, you may need different resources, tools and advice to make the most of your hosting experience.

– figure out what kind of host you are
– uncover your biggest challenges as that category of host
– highlight your potential problem areas on Airbnb (read: where you’re likely to lose stars!)
– arm yourself with strategies and solutions for rising above these challenges and problems

Here, I’ll tell you how to use it and save yourself tons of time re-typing the same things (and you can even stop opening a different app like Notes or Evernote where you might already be copying and pasting your oft-sent messages).
I’m so honored to bring you this exclusive interview with the wonderful Mercedes Brennan of 1 Chic Retreat.

Expect the best from your guests, teach them what that means to you, and they will give it to you. Here are my top three tips for easy changes you can make to your home design to ensure your guests have the smoothest experience navigating your space.
