Summary

We now live in the gig economy. The word "gig" came from a slang word for a live musical performance, recording session, or other engagement of a musician or ensemble which has a defined start and end and is superb. This term was coined by jazz musicians in the 1920s. It now means an "engagement" or stint. 

An economy is a large set of interrelated production and consumption activities that help determine how scarce resources are allocated. Put these two words together, and you get the gig economy. The gig economy is a labor market characterized by the prevalence of short-term contracts or freelance work as opposed to permanent jobs.

Gig workers are independent contractors, online platform workers, contract firm workers, and remote temporary workers. Gig workers behave much more like entrepreneurs than employees! An entrepreneur is a person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit. That is what gig workers do. Our new revenue model! Every person should have an entrepreneurial side gig because employment cannot be guaranteed, and the world is fast changing with digital transformation and automation, rendering certain job professions obsolete!

So, how do you succeed in this new world which is changing fast? Where is the formula for today - the formula fit for the woman of today and the man of today? After decades of leading teams and reaching success in groundbreaking areas such as building digital banks and challenging the status quo, I have created a 13-point formula for success in the gig economy. A formula for success in the new times we are now in. Not a formula for success in the 1950s. A formula for success in 2021 and beyond! 

In this book, I unveil my formula, explain it, and set you on the path toward a series of successful gigs! Don’t live the 21st century using 18th-century tools. Don’t miss the fact that we are now right in the middle of the gig economy! Be up for success in the gig economy!
