6. Outtake: Robert Lo Talks Alset App To Reboot Gig Economy (AUDIO)
In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Robert Lo, CEO and Founder of Alset the game-changing gig economy app where people can barter or charge for their services or offer them as a favor. With the arrival of COVID-19 and stay-at-home orders for nonessential workers our personal lives and careers have been altered. The impact of this pandemic has financially destroyed a large percentage of gig workers in the entertainment industry as well as hairstylists, caterers, party planners, trainers, and more as their income has ceased to exist. Now is the time to reconsider what we thought we knew about work and the economy as we create a new normal. Life as we knew it will never be the same. This is an opportunity to take advantage of this universal reset and create a better world. The Alset app was invented to give local communities a chance to expand globally by connecting individuals through the beneficial exchange of their gifts, talents and contributions. If we can redistribute wealth in this country and globally and help enable people to advance their experience perhaps we can shift some cultural norms and hopefully transform our current economic system into a better future. That is what the Alset app is attempting to do. No one can say how long this pandemic will last. However, we must choose our collective health over our financial security in order to defeat this pandemic. We talked to Robert about how the Alset app could help reshape our economy in these challenging times and his spin on our LGBTQ issues.
