The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I have a small urban farm I grow culinary herbs for the local Food Coop also for local restaurants. the extra income I am able to generate through Airbnb has supported my ability to continue my farm work. The guests who stay here are delighted to see a small urban farm operation, in addition they contribute to the local economy during their outings. Airbnb provides a great service, allowing a small farmer a safe well organized way to supplement farm income. I am pleased with the safety checks, personal profile system, insurance,tax assistance, and home safety packet -
