10 Ways the Peer-to-Peer Sharing Economy Wants to Get You Paid

By Mikey Rox

Over the past few years the peer-to-peer sharing economy has exploded, providing regular people like me and you lots of opportunities to make extra cash with the skills and tangible things we already possess. From renting spare space in your home to travelers to loaning out power tools to your neighbors to offering dog-sitting services in your area, there’s plenty of money to be made if you know where to look. Thus, I’ve pulled together 10 services that facilitate peer-to-peer sharing that should be on your radar so you can start earning today.

You can claim your fair share of this now-billion-dollar industry if you have spare room to offer travelers by listing your space on the site. You have complete control over your rental, including setting the nightly fee, managing the amenities you offer, and deciding which reservations you want to accept or decline. You should also check out this comprehensive article on how to run a successful micro-subletting business that will help you maximize your
