Below are top Brian Chesky quotes.

1. If you want to create a great product, just focus on one person. Make that one person have the most amazing experience ever.

2.  Customers are willing to try new things, and if you can survive, you will have fewer competitors. It’s like entering the eye of the storm. As long as you are strong enough to survive, you can end up in still water by yourself.

3. Somebody asked me ‘what’s the job of a CEO’, and there’s a number of things a CEO does. What you mostly do is articulate the vision, develop the strategy, and you gotta hire people to fit the culture. If you do those three things, you basically have a company. And that company will hopefully be successful, if you have the right vision, the right strategy, and good people.

4. I interviewed the first 300 employees at AirBnB.

5. AirBnB launched and a year after we launched, I think we had 100 people/day visiting our website and we had like 2 bookings.

6. There is no such thing as a good or bad culture. It’s either a strong or weak culture.

7. Think about it this way- if your company is like your child — a parent wants his child to outlive him or her.

8. Build something 100 people love, not something 1 million people kind of like.

9. AirBnB was never meant to be the big idea. It was meant to be the thing that paid the rent so we could think of the big idea.

10. Whatever the press is talking about, they want to keep talking about it. So instead of asking yourself, ‘How can I get them to start talking about me?’, figure out a way to get yourself involved in what they’re already talking about.
