With a four times increase in freelancing predicted by 2020 in the US, work as we know it is already changing. Whatever people choose to do, if it leads to a greater sense of personal purpose, it no doubt leads to greater happiness.

There has never been a better time with more opportunities, more openings, lower barriers, higher benefit/ risk ratios, better returns, greater upside than now. Right now, this minute. This is the moment that folks in the future will look back at and say, “Oh, to have been alive and well back then!”
