In a rapidly evolving business landscape, traditional 9 to 5 employment is no longer the most promising route to financial stability and career fulfillment. Job stacking, the practice of juggling multiple full-time jobs at once, is taking center stage, offering a viable alternative for the modern workforce. Wade Marketing, led by its visionary CEO Zach Wade, is spearheading the movement to champion job stacking as the New Age Employee model. This disruptive practice has implications not just for digital marketing but for labor economics, personal work-life balance, and even solutions to staffing shortages.

How Job Stacking Funded the Launch of Wade Marketing

“Starting a business is an expensive endeavor, and most people don’t have any extra money lying around to start their business,” explains Wade. As a seasoned marketer with eight years of experience, Wade utilized job stacking as a vehicle to kick-start Wade Marketing. “Job stacking allows you to save from multiple paychecks while working multiple jobs at the same time. The more jobs you have, the faster you can save, and thus the faster you can start your business.”

Wade was concurrently managing five jobs, even while starting Wade Marketing, gradually phasing them out as his business started generating revenue. The practice also allowed him to gain real-world experience running a business, particularly through outsourcing. According to him, this day-to-day management experience is an invaluable asset for budding entrepreneurs.

Why Economists Should Pay Attention

The job stacking model defies traditional employment norms, making some experts skeptical. However, Wade argues that it’s a real trend that labor economists should not be quick to dismiss. “Job stacking offers income, consistency, security, and speed—factors that are integral to a stable economic landscape,” he asserts.

Legal and Ethical Considerations

Despite job stacking’s many advantages, some are reluctant to try the trend due to its novelty. While job stacking is far from unethical, Wade cautions about legal and ethical considerations, particularly in the digital marketing field. “Be mindful of contractual agreements,” Wade warns. “Make sure that your different job roles do not conflict with each other, especially in terms of intellectual property and non-compete clauses.”

Balancing Multiple Roles

Work-life balance is a significant concern in job stacking. Wade advises, “Your perfect stack is a where you have only jobs you absolutely love, that pay well, and still allow you to have a comfortable work-life balance.”

Critics argue that job stacking could lead to burnout and compromised work quality. Wade counters this by advocating for a balanced approach and outsourcing where possible. “The rule is, you do it first, then you hire someone else to do it for you,” he suggests.

Future of Job Stacking and Wade Marketing

Looking ahead, Wade believes that job stacking will only gain more traction, especially in industries like digital marketing that offer a lot of remote and freelance opportunities. As for Wade Marketing, Wade sees it evolving further to enable more people to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams. “We encourage our partners who have that entrepreneurial drive because we know how valuable that practice is.”

How Job Stacking Could Address Staffing Shortages

“Job stacking could potentially be a game-changer for industries facing staffing shortages,” Wade proposes. “It offers a way to flexibly manage human resources without compromising on productivity.”

Career Challenges and Highlights

Navigating the hurdles of entrepreneurship wasn’t easy for Zach, but his approach to treating the business as an asset and not a baby has helped him focus on growth. “Your business is not your baby; it is your asset,” he says. He highlights his ability to travel and save capital to start Wade Marketing as a notable career highlight.

Wade Marketing is not just creating a new way of work; they are redefining the entire concept of employment for the 21st century. Job stacking offers a promising avenue for people to pay off student debts, buy homes, or, like Wade, start a business. It’s not just the new 9-5; it’s the future of work.
