MA – The Gig Economy
January 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
From Uber to the presidential debates, the gig economy has been dominating the headlines … and for good reason. Today, more than a third of Americans are working in the gig economy–mixing together short-term jobs, contract work, and freelance assignments, often in addition to their full-time careers.
Join us for a conversation with Diane Mulcahy, author of The Gig Economy, The Complete Guide to Getting Better Work, Taking More Time Off, and Financing the Life You Want, to learn how to leverage the gig mentality and your skills, knowledge and network to create your career trajectory – whether looking for your next assignment inside your current company, or looking to make the jump to freelance work.
What will you learn?
- Importance of having a “gig mentality” while working full-time
- How to manage the risks of “gig work” while maximizing the rewards
- Ways to thrive in this new landscape by cultivating multiple sources of income, skills, and a financial safety net
- Secrets for how to finance time off between gigs – travel, volunteer, or pursue your passions
- How to regain power over your calendar and control over you time
- Ways to increase financial flexibility by reducing fixed costs and boosting income and savings
Who should attend?
Anyone who is interested in creating extra income through short-term jobs, contract work, and freelance assignments. Whether you’re already working full-time, part-time or retired, there’s an opportunity for you in the new gig economy.
