the amazingsAt Startacus the whole concept of sharing skills and knowledge is something that we are pretty passionate about and we love nothing more than hearing about people and places who are just the same. So, when we first heard about The Amazings, we knew that we’d just have to let you guys know about it too...

The Amazings is an online platform where people who have retired, or are about to retire can share their skills and knowledge with others.
The concept itself is fairly straightforward:
- The Amazings list skills that they have accumulated over their lives and offer to share these skills for a small fee. These skills can be anything from woodturning through to bread making through to playing the ukelele
- The Community then votes for the skills that it would like to see on the site
- The skills are then turned into activities that can be booked via the online platform

All those who share skills get 70% of all the revenue generated from sales of their activities. However it’s not just about supplementing income - the real benefit of The Amazings lies in the fact that it is enabling skills to be passed down, from the older to the younger generation; skills that are valuable and skills that just might die out if we don’t do something about it.
This self professed ’marketplace for wisdom’ is pretty special, don’t you think?

Check out their video - and go get involved yourself.
