A home based business, no staff, no rent, minimal overheads. Sound too good to be true?
Anything but. It’s practically possible.
A recurring monthly income one can build in whatever spare time is available. No special skills – Just another of those hard sell internet scams?
Anything but. It’s ” The sharing economy”
The economic model defined as a peer-to-peer based activity of acquiring, providing, or sharing access to goods and services that is often facilitated by a community-based on-line platform.
It has already been done. Those in the know are talking, debating. Twisting and turning the concept this way and that. But there are still a few pieces which are missing.
“The implications of the sharing economy — part of what has also been termed the “gig economy” — have of course been hotly debated in the news media, and the research world has been steadily weighing in with deeper analysis. One central area of argument relates to whether the sharing economy is simply bringing more wage-earning opportunities to more people, or whether its net effect is the displacement of traditionally secure jobs and the creation of a land of part-time, low-paid work. It’s a debate that continues to develop and play out, forcing reporters to weigh competing claims that vary in tone from boosterism to warnings of the new economy’s dark side.”
