In 2019, in the United States alone, around 57 million people--that's 35% of the workforce in the country--worked as freelancers.
That's because 33% of businesses use gig workers. In fact, 44% of people working in the gig economy use gigs as their primary source of income.
Nearly $1 trillion in income is contributed each year by freelancers. That's huge considering that's 5% of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product).
What's so great about the gig economy when it's not a full time job, and what about the health benefits, huh? Explain yourself!
First, your underwear may be too tight and you need to loosen it up a bit.
Second, it's a great way to be independent, work when you want to, and not have to answer to a boss.

And because you work for yourself, you are considered an independent contractor. Which means you own your own business.
As for insurance, yes you'll have to pay for yourself. But there are plenty of health insurance for independent contractors.
I will touch upon that in a later article.
Just to be clear, even if you work as an employee, some companies only pay partial health insurance.
Plus the taxes taken out of your income is pretty high and you can't write things off.
So working for yourself even if you're paying your own health insurance ends up a lot cheaper and you have more money in your pocket.
How? By forming your business as an LLC and choosing to be taxed as an S Corp. Read up on it here. Because if you don't you're seriously missing out on keeping a lot more money.
Can You Really Make A Lot of Money Doing Odd Jobs?
Yes. Yes you can! In fact according to TaskRabbit, some taskers make $150,000 per year just with TaskRabbit alone.
A friend of mine who dabbled in Uber, Lyft, and TaskRabbit told me that he made close to $200,000 a year just from doing those odd jobs.
That didn't even include his other side businesses like investing and startups.
He is one busy guy. But the odd jobs were exactly the vehicle he needed to fund his investments and startup companies.
I'm still waiting for him to treat me to a Chicken Tikka Masala with Naan or two. But that would be my fault since I still haven't gone and visited him.
Now that I'm thinking about it, I don't think he ever specified food.
I'm just hungry.
Of course, the pay can vary depending on your location, the tasks you take on, and your expertise.

If you think not declaring income at all is going to help you, you might just end up paying too much when the IRS comes knocking at your door.
Tax evasion is illegal.
But tax avoidance totally legal.
