For many baby boomers, the term "freelance" might as well translate to "unemployed". The conventional progression of work was to wake up, put in your 9 to 5 at the office, come home, sleep, and repeat. You could make a comfortable living with one company for 15 years, racking up benefits and promotions along the way. Then retirement.

In Rise of the Naked Economy, Ryan Coonerty and Jeremy Neuner explain that this formula is a thing of the past. People can wake up

I must start with the fact that the two authors have a much firmer grasp of what is going on with the 'disappearing workforce' that congress thinks is out of work. The work place is changing, for good or bad, and having a flexible workspace, teams, and being able to understand the 'entrepreneur', is a good think to acknowledge, and is something that little infrastructure for health insurance is not designed for.

The authors dug deep into all aspects of the changing workplace - from the emerging freelance economy, to the coworking trend, to shocking statistics about low engagement in work.

Thank you!
