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.

The most rapid physical, emotional and mental growth takes place during a child's first 5 years of life. At each stage of this development period a child needs different kinds of stimulation. SPARKBOX's variety and expert team ensure access to different kinds of toys and different play strategies. Research on the benefits of play is universal. It is the very fuel children use to explore the world, develop their mind, relate to others, solve problems, acquire skills and gain confidence in themselves. Play is essential to development because it contributes to the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children. Through play, a child's learning, development, exploration and creativity multiply exponentially. We believe, the essence of a happy childhood is every child's natural drive to discover the world through play.
