Self-Employment

 

Do you have the “Entrepreneurial Spirit”?  Is there something you love to do that could become a business for you?  Then Self-Employment may be an option for you.

Starting a business is hard work!  You will need to build your business from the ground up.  You will need people to help you, and you will need to make an informed decision before deciding to go down this path.
