Extra Extra Blog New Gig economy

Hello friends, 2020 seems to be shaping up to be a challenging season, however, where there is discourse and devastation there is always room for renewal and to start again better than how things were.
What has come to us was to keep our awareness on our progress and positive loving actions. And also, we feel that this is all an unravelling of a system that was not sustainable. Humans are here to thrive. May what comes back together be woven with love so that we all unify and rise up to live and create beauty together for each other because we are all one.

With that being said, we feel that at this time it is a smart idea to focus on online activities. It is the best time to incorporate online learning with work from home opportunities along with the Hubspot’s Learning Academy. Together, these tools provide all of the necessary functionality and information for anyone to start and be part of the Gig economy where you can work where ever you have an internet connection. Everything is available for you to thrive right at your finger tips.

If there was ever a time when you should consider experimenting with your own online business now would be that time. The economy as we knew it will not ever be the same again. In fact, it will not come back in the same way as before and this is simply because the economy was living on borrowed time. Given the fact that the economy was broken in less than one month shows that there was very little sustainable economic growth when you operate in a just for profit environment.

Telecommuting, also called telework, teleworking, working from home (WFH), mobile work, remote work, and flexible workplace, is a work arrangement in which employees do not commute or travel (e.g. by bus or car, etc.) to a central place of work, such as an office building, warehouse, or store. Telecommuting came into prominence in the 1970s to describe work-related substitutions of telecommunication and related information technologies for travel. Teleworkers in the 21st century often use mobile telecommunications technology such as a Wi-Fi-equipped laptop or tablet computers and smartphones to work from coffee shops; others may use a desktop computer and a landline phone at their home. A person who telecommutes is known as a “telecommuter”, “teleworker”, and sometimes as a “home-sourced”, or “work-at-home” employee. A telecommuter is also called a “telecommuting specialist”, as a designation and in a professional context. Many telecommuters work from home, while others, sometimes called “nomadic workers” work at coffee shops or other locations. The terms “telecommuting” and “telework” were coined by Jack Nilles in 1973.
