According to Google, currently, “Native” is defined as,
“a person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not; associated with the country, region; a local resident.”
Soon, when you Google “Native” there will be an additional definition,
“a selfless individual offering an educational, entertaining and/or exciting Adventure on Native4Rent.”
Natives are some of the coolest people you will ever meet. They’re people just like you that love where they live and what they get to do – because they’re doing what they love. They’re passionate about sharing everything great about their life and educating

Natives range from everyday people to licensed and skilled experts. We have three main types of Natives, New, Notable and Knowledgeable; and three special types of Natives, Professional, Non-Profit and Charitable. Eventually, we may branch out from the Adventure Industry and offer Service Natives to help with any and all requests, but that is at least a year down the line. The first three types of Natives are the average Native you would think of when you think of Native4Rent, a normal, average person just like you hoping to provide you their services doing what they love. New, Notable and Knowledgeable are a sort of ranked tiers among Natives, with the New tag obviously associated to most as they start. A Notable Native is certified to be an awesome Adventure provider or submits an application to The N4R Team before awaiting reviews from customers demonstrating an exemplary status within their community or as an expert in their field. Knowledgeable Natives have been offering Adventures on Native4Rent for a while, they’re experts and instructors, have day jobs and used to have businesses doing what the activities associated with their Adventures, and they’re guaranteed to be able to teach you a new skill or provide background information about their town. Professional Natives currently have businesses in their fields and are also offering their services on Native4Rent, but get the added benefit of promoting their business as well. Non-Profit Natives provide Adventures at no cost, typically, they’re teenagers just starting out and learning a craft of their chosen profession or retirees looking to share their knowledge with tourists and their community. Charitable Natives offer Adventures that directly benefit a charity or charitable cause in their community and connect sponsors to events and organizations that change the world.
All New, Notable, Knowledgeable, Non-Profit and Charitable Natives that register in 2018 will be able to do so at no cost and will receive free membership for life. Non-Profit and Charitable Natives will forever be able to sign up for free and offer Adventures at no cost. Professional Natives that register by May will be able to do so for free, but will then be requested to pay a modest membership fee of $25 a year in order to receive the added benefits. In 2019, we project requesting a small signup fee and in 2020, a recurring annual membership fee of $20 to cover background checks and additional costs associated with a dream of a growing team and the inability for The N4R Team to reach out to each Native individually.
We hope to have 1,000 Natives on the Native4Rent network by the end of 2018, 10,000 by 2019, and one million by 2020. With the many awesome Natives, we hope to offer five times as many Adventures, and to provide the world with new options for fun, excitement and education sooner rather than later. An ambitious goal, we know, but with your help, we know it can happen.
A New Native can be anybody just starting out as a Native or looking to start doing something new for themselves by providing Adventures in their preferred field. New Natives provide some of the most inexpensive and most creative Adventures and ensure an exciting and worthwhile time. Whether a New Native has years of experience under their belt or just decided yesterday they want to start providing services, New Natives typically have less than twenty-five (25) successful Adventures under their belt on the Native4Rent platform, or less than ten (10) reviews from customers, and provide customers the opportunity of a satisfaction-guarantee by posting relevant information on their profile, linking to their facebook, twitter,
New Natives must hold licenses for certain Adventures that their local government may restrict, but otherwise, New Natives may or may not hold licensure or credentials. All Natives must have insurance before their first Adventure, in addition to The Native4Rent Guarantee and insurance options.
Examples of Professional Natives and the kinds of Adventures they provide:
New Natives are anyone of nearly any skill level and can offer nearly any kind of Adventure, but most typically are found offering Entertaining Adventures.
We could list a few various examples of the types of New Natives and Adventures they offer, but the list is literally infinite, so almost everyone and everything is a possibility with a New Native.

A Notable Native has been offering their services as Adventures on Native4Rent for a while and has been reviewed more than ten times after twenty-five Adventures, or is a Photographer that has already made a name for themselves in their community and can provide some of the most prestigious Adventures. To qualify as a Notable Native before receiving the necessary ten reviews and twenty-five Adventures provided, their profile must be complete, providing guests plenty of information about who they’ll be renting, and must submit an application for approval from The N4R Team. The N4R Team will then contact the Notable Native to get to know them a little and confirm they are, in fact, capable of providing an incredible Adventure that needs to be highlighted above the rest for the world to see!

Never before had Dr. Phil thought to use his love of rocks for anything other than repaying a massive student loan debt by trying to reach the bored college kids taking his class because they’re required to for their unrelated

A Charitable Native would be anyone that is offering an Adventure that directly benefits a charity or the community. An example of a Charitable Native would be a teenager or professional wanting to make a difference by offering an Adventure that would otherwise not work out financially. The Native4Rent platform brings everyone together, so the sponsors looking to give back to their community that would otherwise not know to find you, or to think of the opportunities to donate that you wished they would, can find you and support your cause. If you want to make a difference in your community, post it on our platform and maybe your local car dealership could see it, or someone else entirely unrelated and previously unconsidered, and by throwing the sponsor a nod and acknowledging their contributions, together, you can make the world a better place! Native4Rent brings everyone together so that sponsors are able to see the causes those in their community would like to see supported and make dreams come true.
Examples of Charitable Natives and the kinds of Adventures they provide:
Anyone and any Adventure, the possibilities are endless as long as it is for a charitable cause.
Cody is a professional hockey player that would like to teach kids to skate. So he imagined hosting an event at his local ice rink, contacted them to ask if they would like to work with him or would offer either discounted or free admission for any kids, accounted for the kids, priced out rentals, factored in compensation for his time, threw in all other costs associated with the event such as snacks or insurance, and posted his Adventure! An Adventure could be something like a “School Skate Night!” where he (and his friends or team) have the dream of teaching 50-100 kids to skate. His local hockey or ice skating merchants may like to have the ability to advertise on the radio that they are helping their community by sponsoring the event, or that a construction company is working to keep kids out of trouble!
