Whether you are an artist or craftsperson, therapist or bodyworker, consultant or repair person, being self-employed is the epitome of the American Dream. Becoming self-employed is different for everyone. Some simply dive in and hope for the best. Others spend months planning and strategizing before they officially launch. Whichever way you get there, once you’ve made it, you are now employer and employee. The normal tax rules no longer apply, deductions may be numerous, and savings strategies are seemingly more varied and possibly more complex.
I was raised by an entrepreneur and witnessed firsthand the struggles and triumphs inherent in this journey. If you are thinking about or already are self-employed, one of the kindest things you can do for yourself is find your trio of financial professionals – a financial advisor, a tax professional, and an estate/business attorney. My team and I can educate you on business structure, provide financial strategy, and ensure that your business goals support and sustain your personal goals.
