Everyone has a superpower. Whether you’re a wiz in the kitchen, love home organising or speak multiple languages. It usually stems from a natural interest or passion. We usually take it for granted or don’t see the value that someone else might see in it. But there are loads of people who are waiting to tap into what you know and learn from your knowledge.
One of my superpowers is art. I was a late bloomer and didn’t realise I had talent until I was 50. But I’ve since become obsessed with art and every moment I have spare, I’m painting.
I also love to teach so sharing my knowledge is easy for me.
I use my superpowers as a way to reduce my accommodation costs when I travel for business. A host I have stayed with in Sydney just loves to have me so she can 'pick my brains' about business and life. I'm about to create a profile where I'll be offering my skills as an artist. I can either teach you what I know or paint an abstract piece while I'm a guest in your home.
What if you could offer your superpower in Xchange for accommodation on your next trip? Here's a scenario - You’ve been longing to see Sydney and would love to stay in a harbourside home so you can get the maximum experience of what Sydney has to offer. An Airbnb is an option but it’s a costly choice. But what if you could Xchange your accommodation costs for your superpower?

The list of possibilities is endless!
