Local clubs where every member is an expert at something. When someone needs assistance, the matching expert drops everything they were doing and comes to help. It's like having an extended family of big brothers/sisters.
Each club would consist of people with diverse expertise. Plumbers, lawyers, welders, doctors, mechanics, etc. In the event that one expert is overwhelmed with requests, the club would enlist additional experts from that field.
Whatever happens, you always know someone to fix it at a moment's notice.
How it works
Every applicant is voted in by the majority of other members.
Upon application, the applicant defines their expertise and hourly rate. The rate is approved or rejected along with the membership. Thereafter, the expert charges the agreed upon hourly rate for any assistance provided to other members.
If anyone needs to change their hourly rate, it has to be approved by a vote from the majority.
Every member pays a yearly membership. The money goes for meet-up parties and any administrative costs (software).
The size of the clubs would be kept small - as big as necessary to cover everything that people in the club need.
Rules that are mutually agreed upon.
Quarterly meet-ups, parties, barbecue
All the club members should get together a few times per year to socialize.
People would need a reliable means of communication. In addition to there being a register of everyone's phone number and a newsletter, there would ideally be an app where people can leave each other messages, ask for advice, vote on common matters, etc. For small clubs, a group chat app could work. Even existing social media platforms could work if all members are active there.
