In 2020, there’s no limit to what someone can do to make something out of nothing. All it takes is a little bit of ingenuity, grit, and making the right moves.
Most people aren’t willing to take the chance, risk, or effort needed to do these things. Even fewer of them are willing to reinvent themselves after life-altering circumstances like prison, being sabotaged by business partners, and more.
Austin Walker’s one of the exceptions.
Austin Walker has slowly and steadily built an empire of Airbnb homes, generating increasing profits each month from giving people a great place to stay on a trip or vacation.
Sometimes winning means picking a lane and working in it. And thus far, Austin has steadily built a collection of over 150 Airbnb’s worldwide.
“I just needed a space that I could win in and I happened upon Airbnb,” explains Austin.
He’s fought through significant adversity involving personal history, prison, and business-partner struggles, and over time this helped him develop grit and determination. “I just trusted my vision and knew that my formula could work if I just pushed through.”
Sometimes getting the right formula, then doubling down and making it work again and again is all that’s required to break through into entrepreneurial success. “I had a game to play everyday and I became addicted to it. Within a year I had 12 apartments and was making over $20,000 a month in profit.”
Building something from nothing, bearing the risk, and persevering is the essence of entrepreneurship. The world is filled with people who are willing to take risks or think that they haven’t done enough or that they don’t deserve success, people who stay complacent and live a life of unfulfilled potential. Austin Walker is the exact opposite, and he’s just getting started.
