The shock and pain of the daily layoffs, the budget freezes and the closure of businesses are leaving us with grief, and one big question: Where do we go from here?The entire industry is feeling this moment, but it’s one I’ve been preparing for in my work at We Are Rosie. We need a total system reboot, and where we take it is up to us. This is a powerful moment for our community. And developing a new type of advertising practice through We Are Rosie over the last few years has afforded me a perspective on where we might be heading.
Campaign US: We Are Rosie is the revolution adland needs, and success of client SpoonfulOne proves it
We’re living in the gray right now. That’s not a good thing if you’re a business which has always relied on the black and white. We Are Rosie, a remote network of 4,000 marketing pros swooping in to power agencies and brands, thrives in the gray, and specializes in rainbow — enhancing a company’s spectrum for success with greater diversity of talent. Traditionalists scoffed at this fantastical freelance model when it was launched two years ago by Stephanie Nadi Olson. But now, as COVID-19’s inferno tears through adland, it’s become very apparent that We Are Rosie’s unfaltering formula stands like a fortress amid the flames. And there’s a line of wounded marketers knocking at the door to get in.

Welcome to the fourth report in my Forbes series: the freelance revolution during the pandemic. The big news: we’ve begun to see light at the end of the COVID 19 tunnel. China reported no new cases, a first! Cases in New York City, where I live, are slowly receding. Nations around the world are providing critical financial support to companies, employees and freelancers; this morning there were reports that the US Congress is supporting additional financial stimulus. The news optimistically reported progress in other countries as well: Austria and the Czech Republic will begin to allow some stores to reopen, and Denmark may soon reopen schools.
