Key Podcast Take Aways
  • Understand that today’s economy typically requires additional income streams for most younger workers to survive.
  • Having the ability for critical thinking will be essential. Not just being able to answer questions (as our current education system focuses on) but being able to grasp the concept of experimentation and what that teaches you. Being comfortable with uncertainty.
  • Since gig workers are independent contractors, understanding what a good employee looks like is imperative. Being on time, responsible for output, etc mindset to emulate.
  • Gig workers need to understand finance and taxes. To be able to look at monthly capital and revenue statements to see if they’re profitable or not. Understanding personal burn rate and cash flow management.
  • Freelancers need to be able to understand what their customers want and be able to communicate benefits to them. They have to not only develop their product or service but be in charge of sales, branding, marketing, and new product development.
  • We need to adjust from an employee mindset to one who outsources professional development, sense of security and financial stability to the employer mind-set where you manage all that yourself.
