Art of making choices - Abhijeet Bhaduri
According to Abhijeet Bhaduri, An ‘ALL MINDSET’ person is a regular person finding comfort with the standard work environment without exploring their passions that were suppressed long ago, whereas an ‘AND MINDSET’ is focused on connecting possibilities. An ‘AND MINDSET’ person focuses on the ‘AND’ model of doing things: he connects with what others fail to consider. He raises ‘what ifs’ that intern lead to the invention of different possibilities and help redefine a problem. One thing doesn't hold an ‘AND MINDSET’ person’s interests forever captive, they look for a variety and are of an experimental pattern of thinking. Thereby, converting hobbies into money-making plans. - Such people find ways to turn their hobbies into profitable businesses. An ‘AND MINDSET’ person also applies the principles of observing, learning, and expertise, this is the cornerstone of their success mindset.
Point of view: The gig economy is a great way to help push you forwards and upwards in both your career and life as a whole. It promotes people with the ‘And Mindset’ personality and motivates them to pursue their passions, turning thoughts into actions and dreams into goals. Knowing there are always opportunities in any situation is essentially the mindset of an entrepreneur or freelancer.

The Freelance Revolution Is Just Getting Started: Key Trends In 2022 - Jon Younger
McKinsey estimates 500 million freelancers working through platforms before 2030. The data shows increased market strength, freelancer satisfaction, a growing support ecosystem, and business conviction through these freelancing platforms. Almost 40% of employees are pursuing a side gig in the USA, and are demanding a “freelance lite” work experience from employers: more flexibility and work-life balance, assignment choice, faster career opportunity, hybrid work, and better pay. Most countries see freelancing as a positive or harmless (political) development and are opening up their economy more fully to freelancing.
Point of view:
COVID-19 has given freelancing major growth support. Since then, many online platforms that provide freelancing opportunities show good measures of growth. The gig economy which is also known as a success-driven economy continues to show drastic leaps in the growth scale. The gig economy not only steers comfort levels by giving people choices in work arrangements, types of work, etc.. but also helps freelancers carve out a long-term career.
