Editorial Reviews

Review

“The new landscape of work may feel like the Wild West―so we’re fortunate to have Marion McGovern as our guide. Thriving in the Gig Economy is a rich and useful handbook that addresses every aspect of the new free agent terrain.”
―Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

Thriving in the Gig Economy is a must read for anyone entering or re-entering the workforce in a non-traditional way. But if you are an entrepreneur thinking of starting your own company to ride this new wave or are an executive at a traditional firm, this book has valuable insights for you as well. McGovern has written a meticulously researched description of how the dynamics of the workforce of today and tomorrow have and will continue to change.”
―Tony Earley Jr., Chairman, PG&E

"Informative and easy to read, with a wealth of useful tips, great ideas and cautionary advice for anyone interested in making the jump to the gig economy. Having just recently made that decision myself I have found Marion’s guidance to be timely and invaluable."
―Dirk Sodestrom, Former Managing Partner of M Squared Consulting

“I've known Marion professionally for over 25 years and watched her gain the respect of her peers entrepreneuring and innovating in the Human Capital world through many changes in the economy from the dotcom boom to bust and back to boom. Her insights on what we are now calling the Gig Economy are invaluable whether you are in the midst of running a business, getting back in the managerial game, or just trying to keep up with all the changes happening in the employment world. Thriving in the Gig Economy will provide invaluable insights and resonate with entrepreneurs, managers and senior executives.”

―Karen Behnke, Founder, Juice Beauty

"This is your go-to source for a font of information about the gig economy―how to build your brand, set your price, find work that matches your skills, manage employment risks, and master the ecosystem that supports this fast-growing sector."
―Wayne F. Cascio, PhD, Distinguished Professor, University of Colorado, and Robert H. Reynolds Chair in Global Leadership, Editor, Journal of International Business Studies, The Business School, University of Colorado Denver

Thriving in the Gig Economy is a must read for anyone considering becoming an independent consultant, a newly established consultant or a seasoned consultant that truly wants to thrive, not just survive, in this evolving Gig Economy. Marion McGovern’s entrepreneurial zeal and expertise establishing and running a successful business focused on this marketplace long before the term “Gig Economy” was coined, coupled with her latest research on how this evolving economy is growing and changing, provides the reader with the tools, tips, techniques and resources to truly thrive in the Gig Economy!”
―Jeff Hayes, President and CEO of CPP, Inc.
