by | Jan 7, 2022 | Podcast

The sharing economy has boomed since the introduction of businesses like AirBnb and Uber. More brands like this are popping up, but with that comes an extra set of challenges.

Today’s guest, Hannah Pobar, launched her own peer to peer brand Home Studio List, which allows creators the ability to rent rooms and spaces from other people in their area for their creative work. In this episode, she discusses how she has been able to become so successful with it.

Show Notes

After moving to California and spending several years focusing on her photography career, Hannah Pobar realized she needed to make a little extra money.

With a beautiful, photogenic apartment, Hannah decided to allow other photographers and creators rent out rooms in her apartment for their creative work. This led to Hannah bringing in a couple thousand dollars of extra income each month! – The idea of Home Studio List was born.

In the episode Hannah shares how she was able to build Home Studio List, a business the relies heavily on the idea of a sharing economy, a model very similar to businesses such as AirBnb and Uber.

Building a business like this comes with a new set of challenges because you are no longer serving one audience, the customer. In a sharing economy like Home Studio List, you need to market to two different markets, those who want to list and those who want to rent.
