Description

Come join us on Tuesday, February 19th at 6:30PM as we share with family and friends over pizza, why you need to get your piece of the pie in today's ever-growing shared economy.

What is the shared economy you ask? Have you ever taken Uber or used the Lyft app to request a ride to work? Have you ever traveled out of town and stayed at an Airbnb instead of a Holiday-Inn? Do you know someone who has ever lended money to others on a platform called Lending Club? The sharing economy, also known as collaborative consumption or peer-to-peer-based sharing, is a concept that highlights the ability -- and perhaps the preference -- of individuals to rent or borrow goods rather than buy and own them.

Ridesharing, apartment/home lending, peer-to-peer lending, reselling, coworking, talent-sharing… The sharing economy is taking off in all sorts of niches. According to research done by Brookings Institute, the shared economy in 2014 was approximately $14 Billion and is expected to grow to $335 Billion by 2025.

During this event, we will do a walk-through of our Airbnb condo in Humboldt Park. We will have a conversation on how it has helped us reduce our household expenses, the different types of platforms available in today's shared economy and how you can capitalize on this Multi-Billion dollar industry.

Following our conversation, we will have a discussion on the power of owning a home-based business, the tax advantages one has and we will also share with guests, a business model that we use that greatly compliments how we run and manage all of our other businesses, no matter the industry.

Be sure to arrive early to secure your parking. Dress is casual and pizza is first come, first serve. Please contact Gregory Guevara at (630) 660-3364 if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

6:30 PM - Pizza, Pool, Foosball and Networking
7:10 PM - Walk through of our Airbnb rental
7:30 PM - Conversation on the Shared Economy
