Freelancing Is Changing The Way We Collaborate
Intuit, the QuickBooks people, produced a report called The Intuit 2020 Report in this report they make 20 predictions about the world in 2020. Here are some interesting trends from that Report:
- The Digital Generation (the Millennials) will be 40 and at their peak of consumerism while raising families and using technology.
- The oldest Baby boomer will hit 65 making 1 in 6 Americans over 65 (60 Million). Many of them will be in "un-retirement." Grey but not gone!
- The "She-Economy" is emerging globally as nearly 1 Billion women rise up to take their spot in business, most of them will be small business owners - Freelancers!
- Cultural Fusion. In the USA alone minorities will be 40% of the population. Multi-culture collaboration is the way of the future.
- Mega-City Urban Living. Three Billion people will be living in urban environments creating a huge demand on collaborative small business solutions. It is the time of the Freelancer.
- Go Global = Locally. Households will be multi-generational. The cost of shipping has already effected the price of goods and services. Local shopping will return to the culture. Small business Freelancers will thrive!
- Zero Cost Business Start-Up A Reality. Tech is changing how we collaborate and share. Today web platforms and Apps are driving the cost of business start-up to zero activating more than 1 Billion new small Freelancer businesses globally in the next 10 years.
