FREELANCER SURVIVAL SCHOOL
Happy Joe offers a 12 module course called Freelancer Survival School to all active duty service-members, veterans, and military spouses. We welcome military people from ALL branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, regardless of which era they served.
Why Consider Freelancing?
We are in the age of the freelance economy where talented people are seeking to work as independent contractors instead of full-time employees. Research shows that 40% of our country's workforce consists of freelancers or other work for hire professionals and this number is expected to climb to over 50% by 2020.
This new shift has been brought on by the horrible economic conditions, corporate downsizing, and employee dissatisfaction. Professionals in a variety of industries and skills are foregoing traditional employment and have chosen to build careers as a solopreneur or free agent in the market place. This is happening now and it’s the way of the future.
There are 53 million freelancers in America today.
By 2020, 50% of the U.S. workforce will be freelancers (this does not mean they are all full-time freelancers, but one of every two workers will be freelancers in some capacity).

Freelancing is perfect for military veterans.
Freelancing provides military veterans or service members the opportunity to make a great full-time or part-time income. Freelancing allows them to work around their lifestyle needs, disabilities, and even deployments. And in many cases, the veteran or service member already possesses some sort of skills or training they can make a living from.
