Book Description

44% of 2500 unemployed people said that they considered starting their own businesses.

Yet only about 4% actually did.

How many times have you thought about striking out on your own and working for yourself? What's held you back? Fear? Not sure you can do it? I can help.

This is NOT a "get rich quick" book, but rather a practical 250+ pages, 55,000+ word guide to working for yourself, especially as a consultant or other service based business. Covers everything you want to know about self-employment, from what to do about health insurance to how to best use a website.

The only true job security you can have today is from working for yourself. Only self employment can make you immune to down-sizing, layoffs and corporate restructuring.

Self employment is also the best path to personal happiness - controlling your own destiny, setting your own goals, working at your choice of times and at your level of effort - these are the things that will truly bring happiness.

Why should someone you may not even know determine if you get a paycheck next week? Why should the needs of a faceless corporation determine the happiness of you and your family?

Take control. You are the master of your life - don't let someone take that away from you!

I have over 30 years of experience working for myself, mostly as a self employed computer consultant. Note that this is not about "contracting", is not about finding venture capital or becoming the next Google. It's about how to work for yourself and be successful at it.

More About the Author

I have been self employed for most of my life as a Unix/Linux consultant doing SCO Unix and Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X and a few other things.

I don't call myself a "wizard" or a "guru". There are such people, but the real ones are few and far between. I would hesitate to use the word "expert", too. Certainly I have some expertise in some areas, but I know there is always someone else who knows more about any given area than I ever will.

I'm now what I call "PMR" - Pretty Much Retired but still enjoy writing about self employment and computer technology.
