The expansion of freelancing in a ‘gig economy’ has gained traction and attention, both online and in the work market, capturing the attention of students of all ages.

Here we go again… The power shift. The pendulum swing. The force of hand. Just when the dust was starting to settle in this new post-pandemic era, someone comes along to rain on our parade all over again. Just when you thought you were finally in control, the rug is swept from right underneath you. The new buzzword, “Contract-for-hire,” is the culprit. And it’s very clever. Perhaps a little sneaky.

Freelancers, a recession is coming! When we hear the word 'recession' our immediate tendency is to panic and start preparing for the worst. Cut back on spending, batten down the hatches, and hunker down until it's all over. It's a perfectly logical position to take. Every newspaper, blog article, Tweet and media outlet constantly reminding us of it's devastating impact.

After the last few years of pandemic restrictions, it’s understandable that people are feeling a little disconnected from each other. This separation can often have an impact on our creativity, and stifle the growth of our businesses, whether as a freelancer or a client. While some may think that hiring a freelancer is all about matching their skills to a particular task, it’s equally important to determine the kinds of personalities that you enjoy working with. Cultivating strong, long-term relationships with compatible freelancers will always produce better results for your business.
