Krista and Jeff
Techstars Grad, Raised $4 Million, Built Million-Dollar Biz
Hello! We are Krista and Jeff and we're excited to get to know you!
We've hosted more than 150 guests over the past three years and Airbnb has significantly changed both of our lives. Airbnb funded Krista's business for over a year, helped fund Jeff's to get it started and fully funded a number of international vacations together! Next up? We're going to fund the purchase of our vacation home in the beautiful mountain town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado!
We are regularly at the top of the first page of Airbnb search results and can book out 100% without much effort. Why? Because we have optimized our business and have it down to a science. It doesn't need to take a lot of time if you follow the process we have outlined in our course. We have helped our friends get into the Airbnb home-sharing industry and make meaningful second incomes. We can't wait to share some of their stories with you!
Introducing Krista Paul
I am the Founder of UsingMiles, a start-up out of Boulder, Colorado. I raised $4M in investor capital, grew it to about 25 employees and sold it at the end of 2013.
UsingMiles (formerly known as TravelFli) was accepted into the illustrious Techstars Accelerator Program, which only accepts 1% of its applicants.
UsingMiles was listed as one of 100 Brilliant Companies to watch by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2011.
I was named one of the Top 5 Most Influential Young Professionals in Colorado in 2012.
I currently serve on several start-up boards, as well as the advisory committee of Built in Colorado and mentor for The Founders Institute.
I am currently the VP of Global Marketing for a shopping website that operates in 15 countries and will serve over 400,000,000 people annually!
I spent 7 years living in San Francisco as a Sales Executive for Coca-Cola before moving into the start-up world and never looking back!
I sell, I market, I build businesses, I hack, and I hustle. Airbnb helps me relax, enjoy life, feel free again, see the world (with my amazing boyfriend!) and enjoy the finer things in life.
Introducing Jeff Macco
I am the Founder/CEO of a million-dollar software training company called SeedPaths. Our team has changed the lives of 86 people in our first 16 months of training and have quintupled a few people's salaries!
We've been covered in the Wall St. Journal, are listed on the White House's website and have gotten a ton of local news coverage for the lives we helped change. We were also recently honored as a top 10% company to watch in the State of Colorado.
I was nominated by Governor Hickenlooper (Colorado) to serve on the state's Workforce Development Council to help employers and employees build a thriving ecosystem.
My first investment was in a gold mining company in Alaska and although I lost almost everything, it was an amazing experience (and yes, I shot a bear that broke into my house!).
My second company was a software development company and I get a 3X return on my investment after I sold my shares just one year after forming the company.
I love helping people succeed, especially through the lens of business.
