But most of the media focus is on the low end of the skill spectrum; little attention is being paid to the best-in-class professionals who have chosen an independent path.

Thriving in the Gig Economy is an actionable guidebook outlining ways to maneuver in this new world to create a path that optimizes success. You will learn:
The growth in this marketplace is exponential, and Thriving in the Gig Economy is one way for you to take advantage of all its potential.

She also founded Collabrus, a company focused on independent contractor compliance. McGovern is the author of A New Brand of Expertise: How Independent Consultants, Free Agents, and Interim Managers Are Transforming the World of Work. She sits on several private company and nonprofit boards and actively mentors entrepreneurs in the human capital space.
