Gig Economy

 The Story of the Gig Economy

 What is the Gig Economy?
It's many things to many people. It consists

of services that present a  new departure

of the traditionally employed worker to

individuals who can provide their services

and skills. This is allowing a new type of

business -  in which  people become


According to Statistics Canada household

debt is at an all time high. Combine that

fact with stagnating wages plus the cost of 

living, the gig economy makes sense to

individuals looking to supplement their


Randstad Canada estimated 20-30% of the

Canadian workforce are made up of non

-traditional workers. 

It is expected that this type of work will

become more accepted in the future.

Consulting firm McKinsey estimates that

up to 162 million people in the U.S. and

EU currently engage in independent work.

Forbes suggest that 50% of the U.S.

workforce will be freelancers by 2020. The

gig economy is growing dramatically,

What sort of work are we talking about?

Any short term freelance jobs can work! If

you have the time and the skills, the gig

economy will definitely work for you.

Whether you are great at cleaning, dog

walking, or running errands. In person or

online - it's  all up to  you! ​

The Problem:

"I'm going to be honest with you all; The

one skill I appreciate most with my VA

(who is now on leave which is giving me

all types of sad feelings lol) is that she

makes my job easier.

The hardest part about hiring someone is

that you have to train them, trust them,

and teach them how to make your life


If there was a VA that could make

onboarding so easy that all we needed was

a two or three-hour training - ie they know

all the questions to ask, they suggest ways

to take work OFF my plate, that would be a

 golden VA."

- My friend Cathy Topping  Websitetoolkit

The Solution:

 regularly shows that the millennial

generation (who are more numerous

than any generation since the soon to  

retire Baby Boomers) are actively

looking to work differently  and are

increasingly drawn to the type of

careers the gig economy offers.​
