Description: 197 pages ; 22 cm
"You’ve likely heard about the gig economy but might be wondering exactly what it entails. It’s easy to assume that driving for Uber or renting your house through Airbnb are the extent of your options, but the gig economy actually offers a much wider slate of opportunities. Whether you have a 9-to-5 job and are looking to pick up some extra income, or you’re a recent graduate who’s eager to earn as much as you want on your own time, the gig economy can offer the freedom and flexibility you’re seeking. In Gigworker, Brett Helling provides the essential primer on the gig economy: how it evolved to where it’s at now, and where it’s headed in the future. He’ll show you that it’s possible to replace your full-time income with multiple gigs, or balance 9-to-5 work with a 5-to-9 side gig. You’ll come away with a new zeal for the gig economy, ready to dive into the options at your fingertips and make money doing what you love." -- page  of cover.
