This event is full.

Find out how the gig economy works and how 50+ entrepreneurs can take advantage of gig opportunities.

About the Event

May’s “Piggy Bank Essentials with Martin” discussion will focus on what older entrepreneurs need to know to participate in the gig economy, which relies on independent contractors taking on temporary or freelance jobs rather than on permanent, full-time employment. We will be joined by AARP’s entrepreneurship expert, Felicia Brown, for a conversation about how small businesses and older individual workers can take advantage of gig work opportunities and side jobs. Felicia has experience in combating age discrimination by way of entrepreneurship and has led AARP’s small business resource center.
