Today’s WJR Business Beat is brought to you by Dell Technologies

On this morning’s WJR Business Beat, Jeff discusses the power of freelancing during uncertain times.

According to a 2019 study by Edelman Intelligence, freelancing accounts for nearly $1 trillion. That’s 5 percent of the U.S. GDP. Of the 57 million Americans already freelancing, those who offers skilled services are getting a median rate of $28 an hour, earning more than 70 percent of workers in the overall U.S. economy.

Jeff offers freelancing tips in the segment below:

“Keep the faith, entrepreneurs… Hone your skill now by taking the many online classes offered during this period of crisis and start working your contacts to make sure they know that you’re going to be offering a freelance service in the future. ”
