Andrea Baker

How to Turn Your House Into a Hostel

Digital ties in social media lets us know when we are on the market for a new iPod, significant other, or a new place to live. I will show you how you can go from lonely to excitement by opening up a room to a friend or a loose digital tie via twitter, facebook, and even "Better than the Van". From the famous,to the humble, you can host rockstars traveling through town, to the friend looking for a temp residence, I will get you on the way to making new friends and maybe some extra cash.
