The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
To Whom It May Concern Sharing my home with others on Air BnB has given me back a financial status that allows me to live and enjoyable life. Before I was literally only making ends meet. Working two jobs and paying the bills. Now I have money in my pocket all the time. I get to treat a friend to dinner for a change. Buy a new shirt with out feeling guilty. And even travel thanks to home sharing. The truth is I didn't realize it till friends brought it to my attention as they told me how proud and happy they are for me because its like I have my own little business. And its such a great felling I get helping others out with a reasonable place to stay and sharing my thoughts on the best things and places about my neighborhood.
