The New Sharing Economy
Peer-To-Peer Platforms for Endless Aspects of Life
Matthew Lesko of interviews Neal Gorenflo of Shareable.net
The new sharing economy provides endless ways for you to make easy extra money in your free time, or buy things or services from other people doing the same. You can also use these tools to bring your independent freelance work to a consistent level where it really becomes your own business.

And if you don't find a peer-to-peer solution for something that you need, perhaps you can build a peer-to-peer solution and start your own business in that unfulfilled niche of the sharing economy. It is becoming easier and easier to build these platforms, even without technical skills, with tools like Sharetribe.com. If you need funding to create your new platform, you can probably use crowdfunding to raise whatever resources you need.

On this page you can explore a relatively tiny list of popular peer-to-peer platforms currently available on the internet. Most of these provide tools you can use to solve common needs OR make money providing services like you have a flexible freelance job. Compared to this little collection, you can find ENDLESS more possibilities here: CollaborativeConsumption.com Peer-To-Peer Directory.

Shareable
http://Shareable.net/

Shareable is an award-winning nonprofit news, action and connection hub for the sharing transformation. What's the sharing transformation? It's a movement of movements emerging from the grassroots up to solve today's biggest challenges, which old, top-down institutions are failing to address. Behind these failing industrial-age institutions are outmoded beliefs about how the world works – that ordinary people can't govern themselves directly; that nonstop economic growth leads to widespread prosperity; and that more stuff leads to more happiness.




Artsicle.com
http://Artsicle.com/

Artsicle is making it easy to discover new artists you'll love around the world & to share your creations. Artists who can't imagine being anything but an artist, who put their souls into their artwork everyday. Artists who create - and deserve to earn a living. We believe artists are valuable members of our community and work to support them. Original art. Art that sparks conversation, brings us joy, makes us think, and brings us closer together as people. We don't mean visiting art in a local museum - we mean right there, on your walls. In your home, and in your office. Because living with art improves our lives, everyday.




Skillshare
http://Skillshare.com/

Skillshare is a learning community for creators. You'll have access to our online classes that you can watch on your own time, and you'll get to collaborate with our vibrant and active community on student projects. We believe that everyone is creative, and that giving people tools to harness their creative power has the potential to change lives for the better. Not creativity defined as an artist but creativity defined as a mindset, as a mental toolkit, as a set of building blocks, as a way of solving problems, and as a means to live a more interesting life. That's why our mission is to unlock the world's creativity. Doing so helps people live adventurously and create really great things. We're dismantling the traditional barriers to learning so that anyone, anywhere in the world, can learn whatever they set their minds to.
