Episode 531: Your Place in the Free Agent Economy


On Today’s Show

Angus Nelson talks about the development of what experts call the “free agent economy.” He says the nature of work is dramatically changing into what he calls the “Gig Economy” regarding tasks. In everything from delivering groceries to delivering people, more and more companies are relying on contract labor. It’s a massive shift where companies are no longer incentivized to have full-time employees.

How do you make the transition to survive and thrive in the free agent economy? How do you change your mindset to prepare for the changing economy and nature of work? You’ll get answers to these questions and more.

Begin to focus on Angus’ two elements of success:

  1. Become a self-learner. Whatever field of work you’re in (or want to be in,) be the best you can be in it. Become the best self-learner through online educational courses available on the internet, read books, watch videos, etc.
  2. Expand your network of influence. Get to know people and get to know them well. The power of your network will determine the power of your net worth.
