For me, “gigging” started as a way to make extra money for a down payment on my first home. While I’m no stranger to second jobs or part-time work, I immediately fell in love with my gig as a PR consultant in a way that I had never done with any job before. In addition to loving the work, the perks of making my own schedule and getting paid twice the hourly rate I was used to were quick to grow on me. Almost immediately, I found myself wondering if I could make my part-time gig into a full-time job.
Fast forward a few years, and here I am: a “solopreneur” who makes more money than I ever have, working from the home my first gig helped me purchase, and no longer living for the weekends. And the best part is, now I am helping other people do the same. I hope this website will be a resource and a first step for people who are looking to join the gig economy, either to supplement their income or as a way to fulfill their dreams of becoming an entrepreneur.
