Airbnb IPO: Angels to Walk with 799,990% Profit
How to Retire with $1,000
I don’t know if you heard, but the high-flying, couch-renting, house-party-banning technology startup that’s completely changed the real estate and short-term rental landscape around the world filed for an IPO this week.
Of course, I’m talking about Airbnb. If that first sentence didn’t give it away, the headline sure did.
The company put plans to go public on hold last year and then again earlier this year, but it’s finally applied to the SEC. And it’ll be a traditional IPO. That means the company will be raising money and selling new shares.
At the last equity funding round, Airbnb had a valuation of around $31 billion. After COVID-19 hit rentals pretty hard in the first quarter, the company did a debt-funding round and accepted a much lower valuation of $18 billion. It was able to secure $2 billion in loans and keep operations rolling through the worst of the lockdown.
And since the end of spring, Airbnb’s revenues have recovered surprisingly quickly.
Bookings in the U.S. grew by 22% in June and 6.7% in July compared to those same months in 2019. And on July 8, guests booked more than one million nights of future stays — a feat not seen since March 3, before the pandemic really took hold in the U.S.
That tells me (and some people I’ve talked to on the Street also tell me) that Airbnb’s IPO is going to value the company above the $18 billion it saw just a few months ago.
I’m being told it’ll be at least $20 billion. Now, that’s a far cry from the $31 billion it was valued at before COVID-19 fouled things up, but it’s monumentally higher than the valuation the first investors got in at...
How to Retire on $1,000
You see, when early investors first got the opportunity to buy into the idea of Airbnb, the company was only valued at around $2.5 million.
Even if it goes public at the low end of the range I’m hearing, those investors will walk with a 799,990% profit.
That’s a pretty mind-boggling number right there: 799,990%.
Seven hundred ninety-nine thousand nine hundred ninety percent. It’s got a nice ring to it, huh?
As it should. A gain like that would let you retire on an initial investment of only $1,000 because that $1,000 will be worth over $8 million when Airbnb’s IPO launches.
And it could be even bigger! Remember, that’s what happens if the IPO is priced at $20 billion.
If Airbnb can convince investors it’s still worth $31 billion, those early investors will walk with a profit of 1,239,900%!! Over 1,000,000% in gains! Can you even imagine?!
I’m sure you can. But just in case you’re having a little trouble wrapping your head around what a 1,000,000% win means, let me give you a few examples.
A 1,239,900% gain would turn every $10,000 into $124 million.
It would turn every $1,000 into $12.4 million.
And even a measly $100 investment would be worth $1.24 million if Airbnb merely hits its last equity valuation in the IPO. It doesn’t even have to grow from the last round!
Literally anyone who invested $100 in Airbnb at that early stage could retire on the profits they’ll cash out when the stock hits the open market.
A thousand-dollar investment and they’d be thinking about which vacation homes to buy during their retirement.
And anyone who had the foresight and guts to invest $10,000 into this startup would be joining the club of the super-rich and picking out lavish yachts while sipping champagne.
What other kind of investment is going to let you retire on $100? None. That’s what kind.
Stocks Are Dead, Long Live Stocks
I’m not here today to tell you to buy Airbnb stock when it goes public. I’m sure those investors will make some money on their bet. But the real profits have already been made.
And that’s become the standard story of every IPO I’ve seen in the past few years. All the profits are taken by private investors before the companies even make it to the public markets.
Look at WeWork. That company’s falling like a rock in a vacuum. And its founder got to walk with billions in cash even after he got fired by investors. And it hasn't even gone public yet.
Or think about Uber and Lyft. Those stocks have been down more than they’ve been up since going public. Uber’s stock is down over 30% since it listed. Lyft’s public investors are hurting even worse as they look at a 64% drop in value.
But the private investors who cashed out when Uber went public took home a massive 499,900% gain.
Ten of them are now billionaires thanks to Uber. And that’s because they paid about $0.01 a share for their piece of the pie.
When the stock went public at $45, anyone who’d put in $1,000 walked away with $5 million. Even $500 would have gotten you $2.5 million in walking cash.
Lyft’s private owners invested at a valuation of $11.54 million. Shares went public at $24 billion. That adds up to a 207,872% win. And it turned a $10,000 initial stake into a $20 million fortune.
And again, even investors who only had $500 to put in walked with well over a million bucks.
There’s just no way to make those kinds of gains in the public market these days. The ONLY way to make truly life-changing profits is to find these companies before they’re public.
Your Shot at the Next Airbnb (or Uber, or Lyft, or…)
That’s the real reason I’m writing to you today. It’s not to talk about Airbnb’s future listing. It’s not to advise you to buy stock in it or its competitors.
It’s to open the door for you so that you can invest in the next Airbnb before all the profits have been had. It's to pull back the velvet rope blocking the VIP section of the markets and get you a seat at the table with the big dogs.
I’ve spent the better part of my life building a network of investors, CEOs, directors, and serial entrepreneurs. And that network has helped me grow my own personal wealth and that of my friends and families for years.
My network brings me private investments like Airbnb, Uber, and Lyft before they hit the open market. My network gives me the ability to invest in these groundbreaking companies before anyone else even knows they exist.
And I want to share my network with you.
Thanks to landmark legislation that recently passed Congress, every U.S. resident over the age of 18 can now invest in private companies. This is HUGE, people.
Up until this legislation was passed, those investments were completely off limits to 99% of us. You had to be an accredited investor worth over $1 million already or an institution like my former employer, Morgan Stanley.
And not only did you have to meet very strict financial requirements, but the minimum investments in those private companies were in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
So, unless you were already super-rich, you were cut out of the game.
But that’s all changed now. These private investments are now open to everyone no matter how much you make a year or how much money you’ve saved so far.
And the minimums can be as low as $100. But as you already know from Airbnb’s early investors, $100 can be more than enough to retire on if you invest it in the right company.

I Did the Work So You Don’t Have to
That’s where my network comes into play. The most important part of being a private investor is sourcing deals. That’s just a fancy way of saying “finding new investments.”
The big venture capital funds like Sequoia Capital have entire departments devoted to finding the next great investment. But individual investors just don’t have the luxury of paying a full-time staff millions of dollars to find new deals.
Thankfully, you don’t have to. I’ve spent my career building a network that brings the deals straight to my door. And these aren’t just business contacts looking for money. Many of these people are friends.
So they’re only bringing me investments they think I’ll make a profit from. And they know they can’t slip anything past me after all these years analyzing companies and SEC filings, so they only bring companies with outstanding business plans and immaculate corporate structures.
There’s no guessing if someone’s just running a scam because these deals are vetted before they even hit my desk.
And there’s even less risk involved for you because once those vetted deals come in, I re-vet them myself.
I analyze the SEC filings and the structure of the company. I research the target market to make sure it’s big enough to bring in billions in future sales.
I investigate the idea, product, or service the company is bringing to market to make sure it’s something that’s needed, wanted, and hard to duplicate. And I dig into patent applications, international operations, and even contact early customers to see if this company has what it takes to compete.
Then, if all the boxes are checked off, and only then, I’ll issue a recommendation to my community of investors.
And we’ll help the company get the funding it needs to become the next Airbnb and make us the next new round of billionaires.
New Private Investment Coming Next Week
There are over 1,000 people just like you already taking advantage of my network and getting the early shares of the next blockbuster IPO. And we’ve already locked in several promising private investments.
One of them has already filed plans to go public with the SEC, and at the low end, our shares will be worth about 100% more at IPO than what we paid for them.
It’s not nearly as good as what the Airbnb insiders will get, but we got in at a late round and only a few months ago. So, I’m not complaining about a quick, easy double.
We’ll take our gain and reinvest it in a new private company in an earlier round and get set up for those life-changing profits on the next one.
And the next one is coming next week...
It’s a very early-stage company that’s figured out a cheaper and faster way to get its products to market than its competitors.
But its competitors are all multibillion-dollar companies already. And we’re getting a chance to be the first outside investors in this little upstart set to completely disrupt its industry.
It’s the perfect setup and it’s got the potential to make even Airbnb’s early investor gains look paltry.
So, if you’re tired of betting your future on a stock market that can’t decide which way is up...
If you’re ready to start making real profits that can really change the way you live...
If you want in on the most profitable market in history...

Also, these deals open and close very quickly. They’re not like stocks where you can buy in whenever you want.

If you want to walk with a 1,000,000% profit and several million bucks in your bank account...
