What is the “gig economy“?
The gig economy is comprised of all those side jobs that you see your family and friends doing: everything from being an Uber driver to being a photo editor on the side. But the gig economy has become so much more than that. Many successful professionals have embraced the gig economy as an important part of their working lives and do consulting work, launch small niche businesses, and many other things that would not have normally been thought of as a kind of side career.
But how do you intelligently navigate the gig economy? Traditional educational outlets, like universities and popular media, don’t have great answers but we are bringing in someone who does: Matt Erickson.
Matt is currently an executive at Sandler Sales where he trains clients at all levels of sales people on the ins and outs of the sales process. The lessons that Matt teaches can be applied to any type of business, including every side job, hustle, and gig imaginable.
Once you venture into the gig economy you are pursuing a very entrepreneurial path and you must know how to sell yourself and your business. It’s not hard if you know what to do and this talk by Matt will help you get on the right track.
We hope to see you at our 1 Banting office in Irvine this Wednesday at 6pm for this wonderful seminar! Please register here.
