As a recent divorcee (and avid world traveler) the sharing platform allows me not only additional income, but the gift of opportunity. I opted for property in lieu of cash in my divorce, and Airbnb allows me not only the opportunity to be a business owner, but to provide my guests with a unique experience, and THAT is a beautiful thing. How can we understand each other in a global world if we don't share our lives?
