Gig Economy News: Summertime Sadness

Don't let the summer weather slow down your business.

Summer is here, and while we love the warmer weather, we also know how hard it can be sometimes to feel cooped up at home, building your business when the sun is shining and the outdoors are calling. However, summer is a great opportunity to start shaking things up, trying new things, and going out on an entrepreneurial limb. Take confidence and comfort from the change of seasons and check out our picks from around the web of surprising info and ideas that can help you kick up your business’ growth.

Take Inspiration from Disruption

It’s very easy to take the world around us for granted. The way things are done is so ingrained that we often don’t even realize how much we go through the motions. Yet, disruptive businesses are changing the world and the way we do things, one piece at a time. While not every business can or should be disruptive, reading these stories of success in changing the basics is a great source of inspiration for any entrepreneur.

Try a New Tactic

Summer is a great chance to test out new marketing strategies, and one that we can’t recommend enough is the simple yet mighty explainer video. A lot of entrepreneurs shy away from commissioning an explainer video, but you might want to try giving it a chance. Check out these five unexpected reasons why explainer videos are so effective at marketing your business.

Take Your Office Outside

One of the worst struggles of the summer is sitting inside at your desk while the weather is gorgeous and the great outdoors are calling you. Now, with an innovative entrepreneurship-friendly invention, there’s no reason why your office can’t be wherever you want! Check out this new, portable desk that’s perfect for any entrepreneur who wants to feel liberated from the office.

Stay Steady Over Summer

While we love the relaxed feel of summer, for a lot of freelancers this can bring a dip in work and unnecessary financial strain during the time that should be the least stressful. There is much that you can do to keep your workflow steady through the summer months, and we’ve rounded up some of the top tips for doing just that on our blog.
