My latest book, The Gig Is Up: Thrive in the Gig Economy, Where Old Jobs Are Obsolete and Freelancing Is the Future is now available on Amazon.
I’ve been both a gig economy worker and employer. I know the on-demand, freelance and contract market from both sides of the table and exactly what it takes to succeed at every angle, twist and turn. The gig economy isn’t just Lyft and Uber drivers — there are opportunities in graphic design, content, social media, child care, grocery shopping, and so much more. It’s not just for young adults or moms looking for flexible work, either. Gig workers today are seniors, retirees, actors, artists and people with full-time careers who want to supplement income. You don’t need to have a college degree or start your own business to join the gig workforce. It’s an open playing field.
