Diane Mulcahy (@dianemulcahy) wrote the book on The Gig Economy. Literally. As the author of The Gig Economy, Diane is keenly tuned into the future of work, how it will affect the way we live and the economic revolution it is ushering in. All of which Diane dives into in this conversation.

Six years ago, before it was even a thing, Diane created an MBA course on the Gig Economy at Babson College. The course gained immediate traction and was named by Forbes as one of the Top Ten Most Innovate Business School Courses in the country.

Diane walks her talk. She works independently, remotely, and flexibly in the Gig Economy as a consultant and advisor to Fortune 500 and startup company clients, and as a speaker, writer, and adjunct professor.

In this conversation, Diane and Blake discuss:

  • How remote and independent workers are changing living spaces.
  • Access versus ownership and how the former is reshaping the American Dream.
  • The reigning platform of the future and why it’s already here.
