3 Ways to Getting Started in the Gig Economy

Everywhere you look these days, it seems like there’s someone either starting a new business or a side gig.

We all know someone who does freelance work.

You might even know someone who has successfully quit the 9-to-5 rat race to launch his or her own business.

We know there’s a pandemic going on, but from selling crafts on Etsy to accepting freelance gigs on Fiverr and Upwork, there’s never been a better time to try your hand at freelancing or short-term contract work.

With all the options available in the digital age, it’s no wonder the majority of Americans are now interested in starting their own freelance businesses.

There’s even a term for it now: the gig economy. (That’s just a fancy phrase for getting paid to do short-term contracts or freelance work.)
