Supplement Income Through Freelancing: Embrace the Gig Economy
Odds are that you are a parent or grandparent. Odds are even better that you are married. And people with families are always struggling to make time for them in a frenetic business world that seems to demand all of our time.
But, the “gig economy” of Uber drivers, contract workers, digital marketers, freelancers and the like is ideal for people that want “flexibility” and don’t want to be tied to a desk. Many companies can’t afford a full roster of full-time employees, but they still need people to jump in on projects as the workflow surges.
There are also great opportunities for people who have a skill or passion, especially if they have a creative personality. Many companies are looking for affordable options to build their web and social media presence or write blogs (like this one). These same companies struggle with IT issues and integrating or learning a nearly endless parade of software programs and SaaS solutions. Companies are also looking for part-time HR and part-time billing clerks. In many cases you may need to put yourself out there and make some initial requests for a “gig” but word-of-mouth spreads fast.
Would you like to have a few thousand extra dollars a month that you can earn from home on your own time? Or from a tropical island? Who wouldn’t!
