Self employment and Employment.
Do you think self employment is better than employment? How. If so what self employment you prefer as better. If employment is your choice, do you prefer a job as better in private company, Government Company, in Government job or bank job? Why.
I am self-employed but also worked in industry for many years. In order to be self-employed one needs a set of skills that others are willing to pay for. If there are enough of these people and repeat business follows, there is a chance to make self-employment work.
The downside is that there has to be enough money to survive through quiet times. Few people want work during summer holidays and Christmas/Thanksgiving so sufficient money needs to be earned in 10 months.
There are also a lot of other issues to deal with. Tax returns, winning customers, invoicing, accounts. Not everyone can cope with these challenges. This way employment lies.
Self employment is good but in certain ways. Only if its giving you more than the same you can get in the employment.
For example for a job of X you can get a salary of $5000 + Pension + Medical + Vacations + Bonus. If you decide to do the same job as self employee you need to get at least $10,000 just double.
