Welcome to the Rise of the Freelance Economy. The future is “access not ownership” so we are establishing “access points” across the city from Downtown Los Angeles to Venice Beach. Millennials don’t own a gym at home, they buy a membership. We don’t subscribe to cable television, we watch Netflix. We don’t buy CDs we stream music. American car sales are on the decline because we Lyft or Uber. We can rent a bicycle, get a degree online, have our meals delivered to us, and document our entire lives on social media. We make decisions based on trust (reviews) + value (location) + price point (affordable).
When you travel, you pay 2 rents – one for an empty place to store your stuff and the second for place that you are physically staying in.
What if you were a minimalist who was part of a housing network? Would you be richer with experiences and spending cash since you would constantly transfer your accommodations instead of paying double?

Affording the best location with private room is a privilege, but if you had to select only two, which would you choose?
