Tell us about your self-employment journey.
It has been amazing so far. Even though it has many challenges, I take them on knowing that I am learning something that I will need in the future.
What’s the most valuable thing you learned early in your career that has contributed to your success?
Honestly, the most valuable thing I learned was to get to know myself before I do anything else.
What’s a recent project that you’ve worked on that you’re really excited about?
I am working on my Business Builder Program and a course. They will be absolutely amazing, but I can’t say too much at this time.
Are you a part of any freelancer communities? Which ones and how do they support you?
I’m in a course and group by my business coach, and it guides me on this journey through my new business.
What advice would you give other self-employed people?
Establish a solid foundation in your business before trying to build and grow. Without a solid foundation, your business may grow and collapse. This is what I help my clients with. A solid foundation means setting up your business systems and processes and the details behind those systems.
How has forming an S Corp helped you level up your business?
Forming an S-Corp ensures I get the maximum savings for my business as it grows.
