The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that by 2020, approximately 50 percent of Americans will be 1099 contract workers, and we're already at 38 percent. Similarly, small businesses operated by persons 45+ may not be aware of how simple technology and business processes like mobile apps, automation and sales funnels can cause their business to EXPLODE!
