The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Being an airbnb host has changed my life in such a positive way. I was able to start my own business because of the financial freedom of renting out the downstairs unit of my house and making more than I would have made renting it long term (with less disruption because it's not rented all the time as I have my business upstairs). My current lifestyle wouldn't be possible without airbnb. I am so thankful for the emergence of the sharing economy and the chance to not only help others with a beautiful place to stay in a great neighborhood but also to and have the lifestyle I currently have. It's truly changed my life to have this level of financial freedom because of airbnb.
