    UNLESS YOU EXPECT A STRAIGHTFORWARD RESOLUTION TO A SIMPLE PROBLEM…THEN EXPECT TO WAIT ON HOLD FOR 20 MINUTE CLIPS ONLY TO SPEAK WITH A VERY NICE PERSON THAT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A RECEPTIONIST WHO LISTENS POLITELY TO YOUR CONCERNS AND THEN SAYS, „I’LL BE SURE TO PASS THIS ALONG TO A CASE MANAGER“ That works the first 3 calls but after the 3rd week of no contact from the case manager, one begins to suspect that billion dollar company does not have their act together (or their morals and values)!

    Watching this made me thankful that I followed what I wanted to be as a Property Investor. I remembered when no Banks wanted to loan me money to buy a property especially as single mother with one child. I was 46 already when my son found a secure job with regular income while I worked 2 jobs. I made him to put all his pay to my account. We saved $15,000 as a deposit on $290000 2BR apartment in Sydney back in 2006. 3 properties later within 10 years and going. And that $290K property is now $750K. One of them with million dollars water view is going to be on Air B&B in 2018 in Tasmania, Australia.

    #SecretsSelfmadeBillionaires by Paul Chan i agree but not fully. My brother was obsessed with soccer, in Africa we call it football. He was scouted and went to Germany where he now plays for s club in 2. Bundesliga. Thanks to his football obsession, we’ve now moved from a slum dwelling to a middle class estate. My siblings can now afford school fees without having to worry about anything else. We’ve lived in a wood shelter for a long time in our lives. What you sir are driving at is the old way of thinking ( contrary to the fact that you agree that one doesn’t have to be a scholarly success in order to be successful) .

  17. The more governments regulate, the more there will be Airbnb companies in the market. Why not remove some of red tape and make it easier for entrepreneurs to open new hotels, to hire more staff. In countries where hotel market is heavily regulated Airbnb is sometimes the only choice to get accommodation.

  38. Rajab Khairula sagt:

    I am thinking the same I believe the ideal I have got thanks Evan again BTA 38

  39. I think this guy has to thank that he had the luxury of just getting up, and leaving, to a entirely new city, where he knew practically no one (San Francisco). Not everyone has that luxury. Just saying.

  40. I Am Alex sagt:

    My startup will be most similar to his, thanks a lot 😀 Some great tips where in here.

  41. #SecretsSelfmadeBillionaires by Paul Chan sagt:

    Thank you. Having studied in Germany and Japan, I don’t consider my view Chinese, American or anything else but global. Right now, there is a huge problem of unemployed in all countries. The usual thing is to blame immigrants, big bankers, the government etc.. So far, my study has found hundreds of self-made billionaires who never went to college. In Europe, the founder’s of ALDI, Ikea, Zara never finished high school. The richest man in Asia and Australia are refugee immigrants.. In my humble opinion, most youths are unemployed because they spend their time and energy on soccer, basketball, computer games, TV etc..

    and if they read, they read vampires , Spiderman, zombies, pirates..

    I am an old man trying to save the world.. Here are the alternatives read Ortega Amancio, Ingvar Kamprad, the ALDI Brothers etc..
    instead of reading Messi, Ronaldo.
    There are better alternative out there.

  42. Paul Johannes sagt:
