Gig Economy News: ‘Tis the Season

Don't hit jingle bell rock-bottom this holiday season.

Sing it with us: it’s the most wonderful (and stressful) time of year…

Now that Halloween is behind us, it’s time for the next page on the calendar as we roll right into the holidays. While this time can be scary for independent professionals, it can be completely manageable with the right planning, mindset and tools. Black Friday will be here before you know it, so we’ve rounded up some helpful advice for conquering the season in style.

Take Care

As 2018 comes to a close, it’s time to start looking ahead to next year. Are you covered in 2019? Open enrollment for healthcare ends December 15th and if you aren’t looking after your own health, then you (and your business) are at risk! Don’t forget to give yourself the gift of coverage with our advice for entrepreneurs looking into healthcare options.

Pipeline for Success

If you’re going to usher in a successful holiday season for your business, it’s important to lay a strong foundation. Doing a review of your pipeline and funnel before the holiday frenzy hits means that you’ll be ready to reach and retain your target audience more effectively when the time comes.
