Member Elizabeth MacKay has a great story to tell. She's capitalized on her specialized career knowledge to set up a web site - www.PeacefulBirth.ca - that generates enough passive income to support her while she lives a good percentage of each year in sunny Spain. Come hear Elizabeth explain how she did it, and answer some questions about her operation - as well, she'll be happy to tell us a bit about her life in Spain, what it costs and what she's learned about living there. You'll be getting good value here, as Elizabeth is paid to give a seminar-length version of this topic.
Next our hosts Evelyne and Brad Tompkins will be speaking about ‘AirBnB’. Airbnb can be utilized in two ways. As someone traveling and wishing to save some money, it is a way for people to rent various forms of home style accommodations in over 34,000 cities and is now available in 192 countries. On the other side, you may wish to be a host and earn a little extra cash for your travels while meeting other interesting people with similar interests. You can list your sofa, a room or the entire house, all at no cost. The company charges a small percentage on the cost of the rental. Ev & Brad have used these services while recently in Europe and are hosts here. Check out airbnb.ca and bring any questions you may have.
Followed by the usual lively conversation among our band of Dreambuilders.
Check the RSVPs to see if carpooling is possible.
Reminder: $5 donation for your first meetup of the year to help defray organizers' expenses, thanks. (Waived for presenters.) We're now at capacity but there is a waiting list - a few always drop off in the last few days. If your plans change, just click on the green RSVP button and update your response - that way others on the waiting list can use your spot, and our hosts can estimate attendance.
