More than Half of US Workers to be Independent by 2020?
In 2011, MBO Partners (a provider of management services to independent professionals) made a prediction that freelancers, consultants and other independent workers will reach a total of 65 to 70 million by 2020. This will make up over half of the expected workfare at that time.
Just recently, the same organization, MBO Partners, mentioned that 2015 would be a Key Pivot Point for the future of work. It was noted in the discussion that it would be this year that Americans accept and adapt to the rapidly growing self-employment trend, focusing on ways to make it an easier and safer work arrangement for all involved.
Are you prepared for self-employment?
Whether you are looking to remain in the industry you’ve been in for years, or are looking to make a change into a completely new environment, self-employment can be attainable by many. However, education on the options is key to finding the best fit for you.
Let us help you explore the options: Independent Contractor, Entrepreneur, or Franchise Owner. Begin by attending one of our free educational events on Business Ownership Options where we’ll discuss the reasons individuals explore business ownership, as well as three business ownership options. There will be a deep dive into the franchise industry during this program, including regulations, investment levels, debunking myths and finding a great fit.
Our next featured event will be web-based on February 18, 2015. Learn more and register here: www.frannet.com/bbetser
