You’ve likely heard the term “gig” before, but you probably didn’t give it much thought. Have you ever heard of the term “gig economy?” According to Investopedia, “In a gig economy, temporary, flexible jobs are commonplace and companies tend toward hiring independent contractors and freelancers instead of full-time employees.” However, don’t mistakenly believe that the gig economy is limited to established companies. Whether you hire out your services to a singular company or sell your services to the general public, you are a participant in the gig economy. You aren’t alone either. As much as one-third of the working U.S. population is working in some sort of gig capacity such as contractual or part-time work. If the gig economy has piqued your interest, read on to find out how it can work for you.
