Self-employed Professionals to Celebrate International Freelancers Day, September 24

Marietta, GA (PRWEB) August 25, 2010

In this challenging economic time, a record number of professionals are pursuing freelance work — either by necessity or simply because they want to. In fact, according to estimates by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one-third of the workforce is now self-employed or freelance. As a growing portion of the labor force continues to shift in this direction (a 10% year-to-date increase, according to SurePayroll’s Small Business Scorecard Review in July) many of these professionals are now seeking better ways to not just survive — but to thrive — in the new “gig economy.”

International Freelancers Day (www.internationalfreelancersday.com (http://internationalfreelancersday.com)) is a global initiative to celebrate independent workers and the tremendous impact they have on our economic growth.

The celebration will connect independent workers everywhere through a free, two-day “online video” conference. This event is projected to be the biggest-ever free online conference exclusively for solo professionals, featuring 25 high-profile speakers, including bestselling authors and industry thought leaders. More than 100,000 viewers and hundreds of local “meet-ups” and viewing parties are expected throughout the U.S. and around the world.

«With many economists and thought leaders heralding the arrival of the ‘freelance economy,’ there’s never been a better time to celebrate freelancers and solo professionals the world over,» says Ed Gandia, co-author of The Wealthy Freelancer and one of the co-hosts of the conference. «Attendees of this widely anticipated event will walk away with proven strategies to help take their ‘business-of-one’ to the next level.»
