Being able to rent our home has enabled us to make extra income that we use directly for health insurance! We don't have health care provided by employers, so the success of our participation in the sharing economy has been life changing and life saving. This is the true definition of the American Dream. Recognizing and cultivating opportunity, while respecting laws and having the experience of hosting fellow travelers has meant the difference between needing social services and staying independent. Please be sure to recognize that many people need to put their greatest asset - their home - to work for them.
