A Guide to Self Employment: Path to Professional Freedom
by Manas Das
This eBook is intended to serve the self-employed or someone who aspires to be one. My goal is to provide a starting point where you can find answers to any question related to self employment.
I have organized the information into the following sections.
- Benefits and Risks of Self Employment
This section discusses the advantages and disadvantages of Self Employment. This allows you to self-assess whether you are ready to go on your own.
- Plan => Launch
Here we discuss how you can prepare to be a solo-preneur. It discusses topics that range from ideas for self employment to factors you need to consider to a step-by-step guide on how to start a business.
This is probably one of the two most important aspects of managing your own business. (The other one is listed below.) For your business to be a success, or even survive, you absolutely have to have paying customers. This section discusses how to find them.
After you launch your business you need to put a system in place to make it run like a well-oiled machine. This section provides you the tools and resources for that. From Business Marketing to Office Equipment to Self Employment Insurance to managing Business Expenses.
- Financial planning
This section helps you take a disciplined approach to your financials, from managing your self employment income and expenses to retirement planning, such as Solo 401K, Keogh and SEP.
