Hey guys, Deacon here.
Alright, so back in the day we had a ‘chapter leader’ and community events program. Both were put on hold and I feel that Peerspace made the right decision.
But it left a pretty big opening for something to take its place.
Back in February, I was planning on creating a podcast about hosting. I’d made a little recording booth and got a little Yeti X microphone and learned how to edit sound.
Then the pandemic hit and that microphone got dusty really quick.
I honestly had planned on ending my hosting career at that point, I’d told my family that, despite them initially claiming a two week shutdown, that the pandemic was going to rage on for a very long time.
I was right, but what I was totally wrong about was that I returned to hosting after moving into my new home and I love it now in a way that I never did before.
My boundaries are better, my space is better and I think that the way I relate to guests is much better.
But I read a lot about the issues that other hosts are having and I keep thinking “I could help them!”
I’ve met a lot of hosts personally - a LOT and I like them all. You all are colleagues and good people.
So I want to put it out there to see if anyone would listen to 30-60 minute audio or even video clips and if so, are there any requests?
I’ve had such a good experience since my return that I’d like to start giving back.
I’d always thought it would be neat to answer questions, interview hosts about their experiences and maybe share some tips.
I’m just a host like you guys and in no way do I represent Peerspace or consider myself as somehow about everyone else, I just like to share and help. We can talk about everything from cleaning tips, to security systems, improving profiles, showing confidence in difficult situations, etc.
I’m An extremely open conversationalist, With a good working knowledge of business law which Helps a little, I think.
I also want to put it out there that if any of you in Los Angeles have an issue with a guest, you can send me a message.
I can recommend solutions to problems, weigh in on potential red flags, talk to your guests if you’re in a challenging situation and in an emergency, I can help clear people out of your home.
I’m just one guy and might not always be able to get back To you fast, but I’d do my best.
I’m not backed by Peerspace and I don’t work for them, I just care a lot about the community
