The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
A sharing world ... Is this what we are talking about. My story ... By having Guests stay in my home I have been able to live and stay in my home. In dec of 2000 I had a car wreck. From then on working in an outside job was hard to maintain. Thus less income .. Thus it became hard to keep up with the mortgage and regular bills and I got more in debt. In this world and especially town .. Downsizing was not an alternative, Ugh... Now with having a Guest House .. I am still in my home ... Keeping up with the mortgage .. Keeping up with the bills .. And staying out of debt . .. The best part ... I get to SHARE my gift .. My lively home ... I think this helps others.. This is not a long story ... It is what it is. I enjoy the Guests that come and share my house . I am pretty sure they enjoy their time here. It is a homey feel while exploring a tow, coming for classes, training for sports, searching for a new place to live ... So many reasons they come to stay . Can we keep doing this .. That is the question..I hope so. I love the ability to Sharing My Home ... My smile. ... Seeing other peoples SMILES .. Learning about other people ... I am a traveler at heart ... This way I get to bring other vultures to me .
