Are You Ready to be Self
Employed?
Sample Questions
I live to give myself challenges when I take on a
new project?
I am fairly at ease in difficult situations?
Where others see problems, I see possibilities?
I always worry about what others will think before
doing something important?
I am fairly curious and I am continually in search
of discovery?
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Put your own ideas to work
Being your own boss can allow you the freedom and
independence to use your own ideas.
As an entrepreneur, your time and energy can be spent
creatively by putting these ideas to work for you and the
future success of your business.
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Decide what type of business you want
Your business should complement your experience, interest
and knowledge.
Before you put too much work into planning your business,
make sure that the industry you choose is the right one for
you.
You may want to consider what hobbies or interests you have,
as well as what experience and skills you could apply to a
new venture.
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Make the decisions for your business
Starting your own business can be risky; however, desire,
persistence, and innovative thinking can work in your favour.
Believing in yourself and basing your decisions on knowledge
and experience can lead to the success of your business.
However, knowing the limits of your own abilities and not
being afraid to ask for help from others will help you make
informed business decisions.
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Choose the location for your business
You can choose a location for your business that suits your
needs, whether that means working from home, working
close to home, or taking the opportunity to travel and see
different places.
You might choose a trendy downtown office, or a place
outside the city to avoid traffic or a long commute.
While you have a lot of flexibility in choosing a location, you
should take into account access to customers, employees
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Have the potential to earn more
As an entrepreneur, you have the luxury of working your own
hours and stretching your earning potential.
Usually, this success comes with real hard work and long
hours. If your business is successful, you could potentially
make more money than you would working as an employee.
However, the downside is that there is no guaranteed
paycheque and your hard work can cut into time for personal
and family obligations.
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Have the freedom to work less
While some people go into business to make more money,
some people go into business for themselves in order to work
less.
However, in general, being self-employed gives you more
flexibility to set your own schedule.
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Be involved in the total operation of your
business
Running your own business can provide you with a
tremendous source of satisfaction and pride. You will be able
to see your business grow from the ground up.
However, you will also be responsible for the initial capital that
will be required for your business and the costs involved with
the day-to-day operations.
There are tasks involved that you may not be trained for,
such as purchasing, inventory management, or accounting. It
never hurts to get professional help with the running of your
business.
Focus on the areas where you can provide the most value.
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
Turn the business into a family asset
Owning your own business sometimes means providing your
children and other family members with a place to work, and
a way to finance their future.
It is an opportunity to teach them valuable skills and spend
more time together.
Depending on your children's career aspirations, you may be
able to pass the business on to them when you are ready to
retire.
What Does Being Self Employed
Mean?
 Income level
 Health and Stamina
!Turn downs
 Constant networking
 Marketing
 Staying relevant/current
