Making the leap to self-employment is an exciting career and life change. As an independent contractor, you call the shots. It’s up to you to decide when, where, and how you work. But independent work comes with many new responsibilities as well. When you run your own business, it’s up to you to prepare contracts, manage and pay taxes, organize benefits and insurance, track expenses, and remain compliant with federal, state, and local laws—all while delivering great results to clients.

While tackling these responsibilities may seem intimidating at first, millions of independent workers say the freedom and flexibility to pursue their passion ultimately make self-employment a worthwhile choice. There are many resources to help you along your journey to self employment which you can find right here on MBO’s website.
