Our mission is to help you create your best work, one client project at a time. Digital transformational has fundamentally redesigned the notion of work. Full-time employment is shifting to a new social contract for employment where work happens in sprints, not marathons. And the year 2020 marks a significant milestone where over 35% of the US workforce are freelancers; projected to reach 50% in 2027. Recognizing the need for people to elevate their professional online profiles beyond one-dimensional descriptions, IAMOTHER50 was launched to project the personal stories of freelancers.
