MBO Partners, a firm that provides services that make it easier for independent consultants and their clients to do business, has released The Independent's Guide which, according to their press release, provides:
"...a rich online library of free educational resources to help professionals plan, launch, succeed and grow independent careers."
Targeted at freelancers, independent consultants and other independent and self-employed professionals, the guide includes:
... 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.
We partnered with MBO Partners on The State of Independence study which found there are 16.9 million independent workers in the U.S. This group is expected to grow to 23 million over the next 5 years.
In our research on independent workers we consistently heard they need access to better training materials and information on starting and running an independent worker business. We're pleased to see MBO Partners providing these tools.
