What is an online gig?
The transition from a fixed job to becoming a succesful online business owner since Covid-19 and even more since in 2022 the ‘meteorite’ of the democratization of AI with Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, Dall-E 2 and Chatgpt hit the online business world is a rather steep one. That is why I recommend you to do the same thing as I did in 2001 and that is start with online gig(s) and fast.
You can do that as manager and any type of employee anywhere, any place and any time. Including hybrid working, working at home and as digital nomad next to your day job as you can learn quickly with this new short ebook:

Online gigs offer a number of benefits for managers, employees and entrepreneurs, including:
- – Flexibility: Workers can choose their own hours and work from anywhere in the world.

However, there are also some challenges associated with online gigs, including:
- – Online competition: the online gig economy is very competitive, so it can be difficult to find work if you are not extremely good at what you do.
- – Low pay: Some online gigs pay very little, especially for entry-level workers.
- – Lack of benefits: Online gig workers are typically not eligible for employee benefits, such as health insurance and paid time off.
- – Uncertainty: Online gig workers can experience uncertainty about their income and workload.
Overall, online gigs can be a great way for you as manager, employee or (future) online business owner to earn extra money online or to create a full-time income. However, it is important to be aware of the challenges associated with online gigs before getting started.
