The workforce is rapidly changing. Over 30% of the U.S. population currently freelances in some capacity. That number is expected to rise to 40% in the next year or so. And predictions show the majority of Americans will be freelancing by 2027.
The question is, are you ready?
Maybe you’ve felt the pinch already when trying to fill an open position. More and more people are choosing to work independently as opposed to a full-time job.
It’s time to rethink the traditional work model. Instead of one full-time position, consider splitting it up for two or more part-time contractors. Why? Because this is the new normal.
Solopreneurs come in handy at other times as well, such as if an employee is out on vacation, maternity leave, or extended illness. Consider utilizing one when your team is overloaded or could use a fresh perspective.
If your company isn’t big enough to sustain its own full-time marketing department, you can easily elicit the talents of a freelancer—or form a virtual agency with a handful—to fill the gap, whether for one project or as a year-round resource.
