Shareable's 15 Ways to Thrive in a New Economy

Shareable.net, where have you been all of my life? I clicked all over you recently.

Shareable is a non-profit news hub for people to share ideas and real how-to information for transformation amid a crisis-ridden world. Read: grassroots economics. A fallen economy doesn't frighten them and you won't find arm-chair rants on their activism website. If doing something with your time, fixing a problem or working towards a solution before waving a white flag is your gig, then look no further. Without apology, they act first and tell you how to do it later. It's a place where one can breathe a sigh of relief and leave bitter resignation at the door. If nothing else, it's just plain interesting to see people changing things from the bottom up.

For instance, have you ever thought about starting a farmers market? A business without bank loans? Or do you just want to live adventurously with barely anything - like how to date, travel and have fun for free? Beat the system with a free education and learn to thrive in a "new economy."

Tell us what you think of their ideas below - Take what you like and leave the rest.
