About Us

Whether you’re a job seeker, life or business coach, speaker, programmer, designer, expert, retiree, start-up, small business owner, marketer, or something in between, there’s a gig economy freelance marketplace for your human talents out there to help you. There are so many we are presenting a panel that includes entrepreneurs, plus corporate executives. These executives routinely hired freelance talent to cover all sorts of job vacancies paying as much as $150,000 a year.  

The trend toward a gig economy has begun. A study by Intuit predicted that by 2020, 40 percent of American workers would be independent contractors.There are a number of forces behind the rise in short-term jobs. In this digital age, the workforce is increasingly mobile and work can increasingly be done from anywhere, so that job and location are decoupled. That means that coaches, speakers, expert freelancers can select among temporary jobs and projects around the world, while employers can select the best individuals for specific projects from a larger pool than what is available in any given area.

Our Dream Team's mission is to help turn YOUR DREAMS of working full time doing the work you LOVE into your reality by transforming your thinking about the On Demand Gig Economy MARKETPLACES.

People from nearly 19 to nearly 90 are invited to join our free Facebook.com/Gig Marketplaces Networking Group to learn more and get help.

There is good news here for newbies to executives, mid-level managers, and professionals navigate the shifting economy and the emerging gig/on-demand economy marketplace. In the gig economy, both age, or being overqualified, can now each become an asset rather than a hurdle (FYI: in our own speaking panel speaker ages range from our 50’s, 60’s and also 70's. The panel presents encouraging role models.

Moderator, Mike Hayes is a veteran of NBC TV and Radio in NY, CNN -TV in LA, and 25 years working with

startup entrepreneurs in branding & direct response advertising; Chuck Yeager,is a veteran National Vice President of Marketing for Central Garden & Pet a Consumer Packaged Goods Corporation with nearly $2 Billion dollars in annual sales and hired gig seekers; Matt Fok, is a technology strategy veteran of IBM, AT&T and Oracle with expertise in Customer Relationship Management and virtual collaborative network, and now founder of eZ-Xpo for the new transformational economy; Barbara Edwards, is Founder of California Host, Corporate Conference and Event Planning and has 45 years of hiring independent staffing and will share what she looks for in the interviewing process and selection criteria.

Representatives of Gig Marketplaces such as Fiverr.com, (a gig marketplace with millions of users worldwide), will participate along with members of the press.

Our free Gig Marketplaces group on Facebook, provides its members with most of the ingredients needed for making a successful transition. These include, but are not limited to:

1. Programs that help to recognize and dealing with the hopelessness and helplessness, anger and denial, and all the other

I have used a virtual networking approach to help entrepreneurs grow their business since 1988, and KNOW that eZ-XPO is a proven approach!
Greetings, Again, Douglas, I apologize for the long note, but this is vitally important - for BOTH of us. But I have to ask; are you getting enough new customers or clients? Probably not, right? The problem is not you or yours individually - but rather, there is a new SYSTEMIC problem - that we have diagnosed - and once understood can provide greater new client attraction opportunities, on Alignable, Linkedin, to Meetup, or Facebook, and everything i between. A group of us on Alignable, are starting a SUMMIT DIALOGUE between about the emerging Strategy Shift with new resources and tactics so impactful that when companies such as Fiverr, Upwork, Uber, AirBNB began using the new entrepreneur gig economy strategy they grew so fast that they literally sucked the life blood right out of many competitors. This shift has already become so profound that the growth minded companies from startups, entrepreneurs, small businesses to Linkedin, WalMart, General Motors, to Meetup.com and many other companies are benefitting with rapid growth, while capturing more and more business from their competition. This is creating a serious “Have or Have Not” situation for other businesses who are not yet employing the new profound shift that is literally affecting our entire economy, and it’s rising fast. Where does that leave you and your business growth? The purpose of our starting weekly dialogues about this new business strategy is to help all business owners with a dialogue of such impact and magnitude that it can easily be the difference between your future, and the death, or growth of your business. I purposefully mean to be dramatic about this because I have become completely convinced that a Dialogue about this to PROVE to you the importance of this Strategy Shift and how its impact on your current and future business will depend on your understanding of it. I have been asked to speak about this business shift by City, County and State Governments, Chambers of Commerce, Colleges and Universities because they know the impact of this strategic shift rising so fast that word of needs a Paul Revere announcing that The Business Revolution has started and we are calling all entrepreneurs. WHY should YOU join this ongoing Summit Dialogue? Because while I have a solemn mission discuss this with people, the good news is about the new rapid growth strategies, tactics, resources, tools, connections and more to save you time and money while growing your income are too many to list. BUT there will be many new winners and many new losers caused by this shift in strategic thinking about business, and jobs, and working, and lifestyle, and more. Somebody needs to be leading this Dialogue Summit so we have organized a Dream Team of Experts and Thought Leaders to participate in bigger discussions and smaller breakout sessions over the coming weeks and months.
