Today is Independence Day in the U.S. I’ve written before about the theme of independence and how it plays out in our lives today.
Independence is more important to Americans than ever. Thirty-five percent of the U.S. workforce are now working as freelancers. And while the current uncertainty around our health insurance system might make it seem “safer” to take a more traditional job, rapid economic change also creates a lot of turbulence in traditional employment.
Running a “side hustle” — a micro business with controlled costs and limited risks — offers amazing benefits for your peace of mind, your financial health, and your creative soul.
In other words, it can help make you healthy, wealthy, and wise.
