The gig economoy is spreading further than Lyft, Wag, and other on-demand personal services. Belive it or not, it’s spreading to STEM fields, too. I’m a biomedical enginee -one day a week. A video producer -twice a month, and a full time entrepereneur getting my own start-up off the ground. I’m not alone here either. My husband’s hustler vitae looks similar to mine. To me, the freedom is so worth it- even if it isn’t always stable, predictable, or comfortable.
