FIND YOUR SIDE HUSTLE AND CHANGE YOUR CAREER

A 2016 survey released by Upwork and the Freelancers Union showed that 33 percent of the American workforce either freelance or work as contractors. Two-thirds of those freelancers chose to work that way because of their own personal preference, not out of necessity.

Some have an extra part-time job to make a bit more cash, to improve their job skills, or to try out a career different from their 9-to-5. These freelance gigs, whether they are regular or occasional, can be invaluable to your career path.
