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.

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.

Urban Garden Share
http://UrbanGardenShare.org/

There is limited green space for food and flowers in this place we call the urban jungle. Matching homeowners (with garden space) to gardeners (with experience) is the perfect solution for cultivating both food production and community. Condo and apartment dwellers are faced with containers or p-patches as their only prospects for vibrant gardens. Homeowners can be overwhelmed by yet-another-garden-project. Together, we make a great team. Urban Garden Share pairs together eager gardeners with eager gardens. When neighbors come together and co-operatively grow food, dirt flies and good things happen. Dig it.
