Catch is celebrating freelancers all across the country, and we want to meet you. We’re packing up our suitcases and heading on tour.
We’re traveling to meet customers, creators, and makers where they live, work and play, bringing together the unique voices of the modern American workforce — freelancers: artists, singers, stylists, coaches, chefs, writers, and more — to share in each others' successes and celebrate their stories.
The next stop out of town? Nashville. Why are we heading to Music City? Great question.
Enjoy More. Pay Less.
Nashville has a lot to offer, while being more economical than other big cities like New York or Los Angeles, or even Atlanta. Freelancers have been taking advantage of remote work opportunities, settling into cities that match their lifestyle. And Nashville has become one of the go-to cities. In fact, 30.6% of jobs in Nashville are remote-friendly. As companies increasingly evolve their hiring practices to add freelancers on their teams, it provides many opportunities for freelancers to secure regular work and set up multiple income streams. This helps to create an environment where the self-employed of Nashville feel confident they can strike out on their own.
As more people are coming from out of town and choosing the city as their new home, Nashville is experiencing a fresh injection of creative artists and new businesses. Together it’s creating a strong and diverse community vibe of makers, do-ers, and entrepreneurs.
The Freelancer Population is Booming
