Overall, there are now an estimated 17.9 million “solopreneurs” – people working at least 15 hours a
week outside of traditional jobs – and another 12.1 million “side-giggers” who do regular independent work but for less than 15 hours a week, according to the fourth annual “State of Independence in America” report from MBO Partners. These independent workers are making money – and you can, too.

In this eye-opening web event, MBO Partners President and CEO Gene Zaino shares findings from the report, including:

  • The latest trends and demographics of the American Independent workforce
  • Motivators for going (and staying!) independent
  • How solopreneurs are impacting the economy and changing the business world
  • The role of side gigs in a shaky economy, and more

The outlook for the independent workforce is positive. If you are new to consulting or considering a career change, this is the presentation you won’t want to miss.
