The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Hi, I am a single mom, working professional who has been thrilled with the extra income that AirBnB has provided me. I am able to pay for my daughter's education and have used this to supplement my income. In addition, my guests have gotten to know Indianapolis in a personal way and my recommendations take them to local restaurants which have helped to support a resurgence in my neighborhood. The service I have given to people from literally all over the world has been not only financially helpful, but personally rewarding. I am more than a fan and believer in this burgeoning sharing economy!
