How do you live & work? Take our survey!

The freelance movement isn’t only about how we work. It’s really about how we live.

The shift to more flexible work for tens of millions of Americans is having far-reaching effects on the nation’s economy -- and on the real lives of those workers.

Many freelancers would never give up the freedom (and responsibility) that comes with being an independent worker. Others think the freelance grind is a fair trade for the ability to follow their passions. And some would grab the first 40-hour-a-week-job-with-benefits they could find -- if only those existed anymore.

So, what does freelancing mean for the way you work and live?

Please take a couple minutes to fill out this survey.

Freelancers Union is trying to really understand how freelancers are changing the definition of success, and we need your insight to do it.

Like I wrote in Fast Company recently, “Independent workers are establishing a new way to work--and in the process, they’re cultivating a new way of life. Success in 2014 is less about wealth than it is about value--the value of time, community, and well-being.”

There’s no doubt freelancers are leading the way to what’s next.

This survey will help us get there.

(Oh, and if you take the survey, you’ll be entered to win a $250 gift card.)

So, here’s the survey link again.

Thanks for your help!
