The Gig Economy Community


I am always trying to learn more about companies in the #GigEconomy eco system.  In researching my latest book, Thriving in the Gig Economy, I got to know some very interesting people and Companies.  Since them, I have profiled several in my #CoolGigCompany blog posts.   Now I want to highlight those firms and providing links for you.  Those in bold are in the book.  Those in italics have blog posts. Others may have posts in the future.

I invite you to check them all out.
