What is the gig economy and why does it matter to you as a small business owner? In many cases, it’s because small businesses are the gig economy, or because it can be an affordable staffing solution, especially for new business owners.
The basic definition comes down to temporary, and typically flexible jobs that are commonplace positions where a company can hire independent contractors and freelancers instead of full-time employees to fill these positions. At the moment, it’s estimated that about one third of the working population already works in some sort of gig capacity.

Her clients are tech firms and professional and financial service business owners who lack the internal resources to execute on their own.
