Working with Freelancers: How to Find, Hire, and Work with Them

Working with freelancers is something that an increasing number of small businesses are doing today. As we have previously discussed, we have now entered the freelance era, and you can expect freelancers to become even more prominent in most industries. This is also an opportunity for your business to add skill, knowledge and talent in a flexible manner.

 

 

Welcome to the Freelance Era

Technology has had a profound impact on how people work, our careers, and our aspirations to be our own bosses. In an economy that is now more decentralized than ever, there has never been more opportunity for professionals to buck the traditional 9-5 and have more control over their careers.

How Decentralized Has the Economy Become?

According to Spera, “There are now over 53 million of us in the U.S. alone who do work and make money without ‘owning a business’ or reporting to an office with a boss every day. By 2020, it is estimated that over half the workforce will be working independent of a traditional employer, free agents of their trade.”

In Canada, there are now well over 1 million small businesses.

Today, being a freelancer and owning your own small business is a REAL and VIABLE career option.
