In this episode Barry and Eleanor Matthews meet 2 of the people who make the gig economy possible; the talent providing the services.
They are joined by Joanna Hulks and Alexander Chekspir who both provide services in the human cloud, but in completely different ways. Jo works on the Limitless gigCX platform www.limitlesstech.com answering text based customer queries in her spare time while bringing up a young baby and Alex works on the Topcoder platform www.topcoder.com and has been taking part in and winning software challenges since he was at University.
They discuss the work they do, how they got into the gig economy and the benefits of being able to choose where and when they work; including in-between 3am baby feeding or on a beach in Brazil with a beer.
Barry and Eleanor also discuss their introduction to the new social media app Clubhouse and pledge to start a new How The Future Works room – watch this space!
