Dave Lukas Chats with Zeona McIntyre
34: Designing a Life Through the Shared Economy with Zeona McIntyre
In this episode, Dave is excited to welcome Zeona McIntire. Zeona is the poster child for the new economy, the shared and gig economy. She was an earlier adopter of AirBNB and owns a number of properties that she rents through the site. She also created a niche for managing property for AirBNB owners and manages dozens of properties throughout the world for owners. She teaches others how to invest in properties with AirBNB in mind and create automated businesses. She spends half the year in Denver, Colorado and the other half traveling the world as an international pet and house sitter.
Zeona may be part nomad, but make no mistake, she knows her business. Dave’s asked her to hold nothing back and give you every secret she has for succeeding in the new economy in this interview.
Zeona started working with AirBNB 6 years ago when a friend of hers introduced her to it. At the time, she was in school, so she didn’t act on moving forward. That was until she found out her friend made $50k off their condo. She then dove in and started with her first property and went from there. She now have 5 properties of her own and manages dozens worldwide.

Do you like the emails and newsletters that we send out from Misfit?
When we built Misfit, we looked for the best email management system we could find to make sure we could always deliver the best to our listeners and subscribers. After trying many of the ones you heard of (MailChimp, Constant Contact, etc.), we found Benchmark. It was so much easier to use, had more and better features, and had the best content builder.
We like them so much, we went to them and told them that we wanted to share their solution with Misfit Nation, but they had to give us an amazing offer for our audience.
