Sharing is caring. Sharing makes you money. It's time to take your slice of the pie. 

Are you looking to make ends meet? Have you tried to work two, three, or more jobs without making much headway? Through this course, experienced entrepreneurs Glenn Carter and Dr. Duncan Koerber show you how to earn extra money every month through the new sharing economy.

The sharing economy pays out millions of dollars a day to people just like you. By the year 2020, this enterprise will be worth over $300 billion. The time to get involved is now, and it's easier than you'd think.

The Secrets of the Sharing Economy course goes beyond well-known platforms like ride-sharing company Uber and home-sharing enterprise Airbnb to tell you about over 20 other online platforms you can leverage to turn underused assets into income-producing nest eggs.

Glenn Carter is a family man and a full-time employee, but he's cracked the code to making side income through a variety of sharing economy platforms without letting them take over his life. Take a journey with Glenn and Duncan to find out more about this new system and how you can implement money-making action plans today.

Secrets of the Sharing Economy is a fascinating and informative course that can help you live a more flexible and financially-savvy lifestyle for minimal investment. Whether you need to make an extra hundred dollars a month or run your own full-time business, this course will show you exactly how to capitalize on a thriving trend.
