The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I have a historic stone home that has been in my family since the 60's. I've poured my heart and soul in to this place, but as a single woman, it isn't easy to keep up with my home expenses. It is a stone house, and so expensive to heat--and we have long winters. Air BnB has enabled me to make some extra money to put back in to my 180-year-old house which right now, desperately needs a new deck. My guests love the uniqueness of their stay with me, and I love recommending local small businesses and parks for them to patronize. It is definitely a win-win for me and for my community. Nina Cheney
