Time to Consider 1099? Explore New Income Streams through Self-Employment!

with Shira Harrington

Purposeful Hire

If your job search has been stuck in a rut, you’re not alone. Most employers are hunting for that elusive “unicorn” candidate, which can keep you perpetually wandering around the job boards. And that can take a big toll on your bank account. Enter 1099 employment, an increasingly popular choice for people who want to supplement or replace their full-time W-2 income. In fact, more than 1/3 of today’s workers are freelancers or contract workers. And that’s not including the millions who have started small businesses. Want to know how they do it?

Join us for this eye-opening session where you’ll learn keys to re-purposing your professional skills into meaningful self-employment. You may even find that the freedom, flexibility and endless opportunities for doing work you love keeps you coming back for more. And if you’re age 50+, workplace ageism will become a thing of the past.


Shira Harrington, Chief Engagement Officer of Purposeful Hire, is a career coach and executive recruiter who believes deeply in her tagline, “For every hire, there is a higher purpose.” Helping employers and job seekers find each other in mutually beneficial ways, her passion is to help people serve the world using their God-given gifts and talents.
