She worked in an office. A steady paycheck. Insurance.
That was then, this is now.
Asked her why she left “regular” employment for precarious gig work. Here’s what she said:
“The money I make now goes into my pocket,
“I’m my own boss. I set my own hours. I don’t ask
for flexibility; I have it.”
“I can work as much or as little as I want.”
“I don’t have work long hours without any
acknowledgement or praise when I pull something amazing off. Now, my customers
give me kudos. EVERY time.
“If your job doesn’t give you want you want, GO GIG.”
