The solopreneur

The solopreneur

Upwork reported that 36% of the US workforce freelanced in 2020. The same report finds that 58% of traditional workers who started working remotely during the pandemic consider freelancing.

Experts predict that the majority of US workers will engage in independent work by 2023. Many of these workers will fall into the category "solopreneur", an independent worker who works alone.
