MBO Partners, the leader in the $250-billion and growing independent consulting sector in America, today unveiled The Independentís Guide, a rich online library of resource guides, articles, templates and downloadable tools to help professionals plan, launch, succeed and grow their independent consultancy career.
ìItís about time our countryís pioneering independent professionals got the support they deserve,î says Gene Zaino, MBO Partnersí President & CEO. ìHappy, satisfied and productive ñ they are the silver lining in the jobs picture, and represent the future of how Americans will work. With the right educational content at their fingertips, they can more easily create and sustain thriving solo careers.î
Across the workforce generations, professionals ranging from experienced Boomers to new Millennial workers are opting to take charge of their career and pursue the path of independent work. In fact, since 2011, the independent workforce has grown from 16 million to more than 16.9 million and is expected to grow to 23 million strong within the next five years. 7 in 10 of Americaís independent workers are knowledge workers, and 1 in 12 independent professionals will go on to build a bigger independent business and hire others. Yet, this growing contingent of workers who add one trillion dollars to the U.S. economy have, until now, largely been left to find their own way as they navigate the journey from traditional employment to independence.
ìWe listened to Americaís independent workers and discovered a need for an authoritative guide,î says Aassia Haq, Chief Marketing Officer for MBO Partners. ìMBOís goal is to build the most comprehensive library of information and resources for those individuals and companies who see that the future lies in independent work arrangements.î
Available resources within the intuitive multi-media online interface include videos, articles, checklists, and earning guides, as well as downloadable tools such as sample contracts and checklists to help independent contractors, consultants, freelancers and small consulting firms succeed in every phase of their career.
