Time Magazine dubbed the Collaborative Consumption one of the top 10 ideas that will change the world.
The three co-authors (Chelsea, Gabriel and Alex) of It's a Shareable Life have cumulatively hosted over 100 people on Couchsurfing, earned over $50,000 on Airbnb, coworked from all over the world, and made hundreds of dollars per month sharing their cars – just to name a few.
With their hands on experience and observations, this trio will give you the low down on the new sharing economy.
This practical guide will show you how to:
- Work from anywhere
- Travel the world on a backpacker budget
- Live rent free
- Find work even in a down economy
- Have a new car for every occasion
Chelsea, Gabriel and Alex spent the last 12 months researching, filming and writing about the new sharing economy from all angles. Our intent is to make sharing cool so that others can experience the economic freedom, joy and social connection that sharing provides.
We wrote this book from the user perspective with tons of how-tos, case studies and tips and tricks.
Now we’re in the process of self-publishing and we need your help.
You can get a digital copy of the book before anyone else sees it for just $15 - or if you want to hold the real thing in your hands, get a signed copy for $20 bucks.
Want to celebrate the sharing economy with one of the biggest, best parties ever conceived dubbed the Share Party of the Year? Get your VIP invite now. The party will be held in San Francisco.
