As I read this article, it reminded me of what I did when I had a small business. I was responsible for everything: the work, sales, accounting, IT, maintenance.

The story here is intended to give the gig worker pointers on what it takes to be successful managing a career that moves from project to project. The points are valid, they are informative, and they work equally well if you're working for yourself or creating a growing organization.

Planning, preparation, and good execution. These are key to the gig or to the small business.
