The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I began my AirBnB membership in April 2015, with an extra room and beautiful land to share my husband and I felt it right to open our home to travelers. At first we were hesitant about opening our home up to strangers especially with young children, however, through the secured network of AirBnB our fears and hesitancy soon dissipated. What remained were beautiful traveling souls coming from all over Jamaica, Germany, Mexico, and the middle east of the US. While my husband and I are unable to travel due to work and family obligations we were so happy to have travelers come to us. Up until now we have had nothing but positive experiences. Humbled souls, familiar hearts, and new friendships. I am truly blessed to be apart of such a broad network and so happy that AirBnB exists. This company has done so much to ensure safety and quality in an effort to neutralize and suit the typical traveling individual/family. Forever Thankful, Jacklin Jackson-Khalsa
