Jasper Ribbers Airbnb Expert and HostIn this episode, it was my pleasure to welcome Jasper Ribbers from the well known podcast Get Paid For Your Pad. Jasper is a well known Airbnb expert and Airbnb host. He has made a good living renting out his apartment in Amsterdam on the Airbnb platform. So much so, it has allowed him to travel the world and stay in many different Countries absorbing the culture for an extended period of time.
