The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
We have a small guest house converted from our garage. A year ago, a friend who worked near us but lived two hours away asked if she could use it a few nights a week. It has been a godsend for her and a welcome source of a little bit extra for us coming in. Without this extra cash each month, we would be in a much less comfortable position. Rising expenses and real estate prices are beyond our reach. This is an ideal way to help a friend and help ourselves also.
