About this event

16.5 million Americans worked in “contingent” or “alternative arrangements” in 2018, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report. That number will continue to grow as people look for ways to make more money from their side hustles and leave their 9-to-5s behind.

It’s tricky though — turning your gigs into a full-time career. But with commitment, collaboration and courage, you can do what you love for a living.

Each Friday this summer, we will be highlighting a different aspect of the Freelancing Business.
