Gig Economy News: Give Thanks


Whether or not you’re marking Thanksgiving with turkey and pumpkin pie, this week is a great opportunity to take a step back and appreciate all that being part of the Gig Economy enables us to do. Let’s take a look at some things that we are thankful for and some things that we need to slow down and make time to appreciate. Read on to get your gratitude going!

A Picture’s Value

We are thankful for the tools that allow us to create better, higher-quality products and services for our customers. One ubiquitous (but intimidating) tool is Photoshop. Tackle the full Adobe suite head-on with help from our new Learn from Fiverr Photoshop courses and your “friendly neighborhood graphics geek” and Fiverr Pro Kirk Nelson.

Game Day Lessons

For many people, football is as synonymous with Thanksgiving as turkey. This year, we’re grateful that a fellow freelancer evaluated the entrepreneurial lessons we can learn from America’s other pastime. See if you can remember these lessons come kickoff time and find some more of your own.

Appreciate Wisdom

For those who get together with family (be it biological or chosen), Thanksgiving is a chance to absorb some hard-earned wisdom from those who are older, wiser, or maybe just more experienced. So, take these holiday insights that we’ve put together based on research and be thankful to get great lessons without having to learn the hard way.

Thank the Robots

Does the darkness around this time of year leave you feeling fatigued? Try automating your work. Automation is a great tool for when you need to put your work on the back burner to focus on other things. Automation, however, cannot solve every entrepreneurial issue. Here are a few tips on how automation can and can’t help your business run smoother even when you take a break from the helm.
