Philipsburg – After the passing of hurricane Irma, we lost more than 70% of our accommodation on the island. However, there was still a demand for this destination. This demand now creates new opportunity. What alternatives can we supply to keep our tourism product alive and at the same time creating a revenue for many that may have lost their jobs after this natural disaster.
When thinking of a short-term home rental, most people may envision a vacation home near a tourist attraction. But, the newest ‘sharing economy’ trend is multifamily housing owners listing their units on short-term rental sites. Why aren’t all owners using this opportunity to generate revenue from vacant units? Or seniors, who may have additional rooms available because their kids have moved out? Even unemployed persons looking for a new career opportunity can used this new trend to become, property managers, or launch support companies who provide key services like cleaning, photography and marketing.
On August 20th & 21st, Le Grand Solutions (LGS) launches, “Acres of Diamonds”, a monthly conference series dedicated to presenting holistic approaches to creating wealth from unearth treasures in our people, our homes, our communities and our surroundings.
Our first excavation begins within our homes, and its value when utilized in a business concept called, “Home Sharing.” Home Sharing is exactly what the name suggests, turning your available property, which can be from; a couch, tent, apartment, or tree house to a palace, according to Airbnb, into a short-term rental.

Then we will explore the treasures in our people, our communities and our surroundings to highlight their significance in this industry and how you can capitalize on them.
