The on-demand economy, also known as the sharing economy or the gig economy, is a new and greatly expanding business model that is basically nothing more than a mobile app that connects people who need some type of service—a ride, a delivery, a plumber, a house cleaner—with individuals who provide that service. There are hundreds of thousands of newly self-employed individuals. Uber alone claims that they have 160,000 workers just in California. The great majority of these on demand workers have zero experience or knowledge about self-employment. This book will give on-demand workers everything they need to know about being self-employed.<br /><br /></span><span>Bernard B.
