What’s the biggest freelance opportunity?

I am a big fan of freelancing. I think it’s a great opportunity to either start off on your own if you’re leaving corporate or a means to fund a business. In other words, it’s a great side hustle that you can put together for yourself.

It’s the way the world is going, the so called ‘gig economy.’ What I wanted to talk about here is what’s the biggest freelance opportunity out there.

Some may say writing, consulting, but I am going to argue that the biggest one is project management. For this article I am not going to bore you with extensive stats — that comes next.

Now, back to the question i the title.

Project Management

Once you have those basics, you can always learn the industry specifics. It’s really that simple. Having said that some industries may be more difficult than others. An example of that may be the heritage sector. I have seen various tenders for the UK&I for restoration of cultural sites projects. These projects are tenders meaning available to the public and are requiring project management — downside is having that heritage knowledge.

You can use the project management skills anywhere. It’s for this reason that you can get yourself a project management contract somewhere for the duration of the project. What’s more is that you can rely on those industry experts who can provide you the expertise you need to make an informed decision.

Remember, your job is to mange the project, not to be an industry subject matter expert. It’s that simple.

Why not start now?
