This weekend I took some times to read articles from my reading list. One of them was an interview of Brian Chesky, the founder of Airbnb, during a class at Stanford University.

The story of the beginning of Airbnb is really interesting. I strongly encourage you to read the student’s notes.

Here is one quote that I really loved.

“One thing I learned is, big ideas sound stupid in the beginning. I’ve always heard that if your idea is any good there is no problem with sharing it because people will dismiss it. Many ideas come from solving your own problem which aren’t life changing problems — but these ideas could potentially become life changing ideas.” - Brian Chesky, founder and CEO of Airbnb.
