This book is for anyone who wants to build a business around their talent or art, but feels overwhelmed by the 'business' part. Becoming self-employed is a lot easier than you think, once you know what’s involved and give yourself some time for the journey.
The approach here is to get licensed, get your first customer, to “set up shop," and then to build your business over time. It covers essential topics such as license and tax requirements (specific to Seattle) as well as handling numbers, marketing, nitty gritty details and self-management.
Along the way, ProTips offer common sense advice to save you time and make your life easier. Also includes checklists to track your progress and workspaces to develop ideas. Designed to flip around or read front-to-back.
Most people do not need a business plan.
It’s best to build your business as you go.
Once you know the requirements of doing business, you can meet them however you want.
Do things your way.
Don't wait. Start as soon as possible.
Great for: massage therapists, yoga teachers, artists, writers, designers, editors, musicians, jewelry makers, consultants, therapists, bookkeepers…and anyone who wants to make their own custom job.
