Brian Chesky of Airbnb on "the worst idea ever"

Who knew people would be game to open up their homes to strangers?

The first step in starting a successful business is having a good idea, but sometimes even a bad one can work. Brian Chesky started Airbnb on the risky premise that people would agree to open their homes to strangers, and it worked. He didn’t just build a $10 billion company, he changed culture as we know it, helping to usher in the sharing economy.

This is NOT a paywall.
