There are 30 million Americans working as freelancers or independent workers. But, there are huge differences within this independent, entrepreneurial cohort.

By 2019, the independent workforce is expected to grow by 40 million. Check out exactly who these side-giggers and solopreneurs are and how they're making money outside of corporate America in the infographic below.
