More and more people are getting into the “Gig Economy”. If you aren’t familiar with the term, it means a labor market characterized by the prevalence of short-term contracts or freelance work as opposed to permanent jobs. In other words, doing 1099 work for companies based on projects instead of working full time for a company.
I’ve been doing “Gig Economy” work since 2009 when Blue Gurus was born. And I learned some great lessons over the first three years as I went from charging hourly to charging by the project. I hope you take 5 minutes to watch the video and learn why hourly isn’t always the right answer for contract work. Especially if the value you are bringing far outweighs the amount of time it takes to get things done.
Thanks for watching… and I hope you are having a great week!
