Freelancers / Solopreneurs / independent workers have it pretty good these days. A recent study published in Harvard Business Review suggests that 2.7 million independent workers make over $100K a year! That helps explain why flocks of people are leaving the corporate world behind and pursuing their own ventures. According to the MBO Partners the independent worker category is growing faster than the overall labor force.
So what can you do to get your piece of the pie? Start by identifying what type of pie you enjoy most and take small bites. Try picking up some freelance work on the side, see if you like what you're doing, and most of all provide value. 75% of freelance work still comes via word of mouth, so you have to be knowledgable and passionate about what your doing if you want people to work with you.
