The Gig Economy

Traditional full-time jobs are insecure, increasingly scarce, and filled with employees who wish they were doing something else with their lives. Working in the Gig Economy – as a consultant, contractor, freelancer, or part-timer – can offer an attractive, interesting, flexible, and even lucrative and secure alternative to the corporate cube.

Packed with research, exercises, and interviews, this eye-opening book gives practical professional and personal strategies to help you: Construct a life based on your priorities and your vision of success; Create your own security and safety net; Take more time off; Build flexibility into your financial life; Face your fears by reducing risk; and prepare for the future.

Five years ago, before it was even a thing, Diane created and began teaching an MBA class on The Gig Economy at Babson College. The class gained immediate traction and was named by Forbes as one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Business School Classes in the country.

Diane is an active an enthusiastic participant in the Gig Economy. In between full-time jobs and consulting gigs in private equity and venture capital, Diane has been a Visiting Fellow at Trinity College in Dublin, an Executive-in-Residence at Babson College, and an Eisenhower Fellow. She has taken two different years off to travel around the world.

Diane is currently an author, an Adjunct Lecturer at Babson College, and a Senior Fellow at the Kauffman Foundation. She has previously written and published two books and a widely-read report on venture capital. Her work has been featured in The Economist, The Financial Times, Forbes, Fortune, Harvard Business Review, The Irish Times, The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous industry publications here and abroad. Diane has been interviewed on NPR and Reuters, and speaks at conferences and universities worldwide.

When not working, Diane enjoys reading (mostly non-fiction), writing (only non-fiction), food (eating and cooking), wine, film, yoga, and running. Diane holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from Harvard University. She is a dual EU (Irish) and US citizen. She lives in Boston with her husband Kevin.
