Should I Become Self-Employed?

Whether to become self-employed is an important decision. But thanks to the research of many scientists and the accumulated experience of professional career counselors, we know the answer.  Their advice is clear and practical; follow these three principles:

  1. Know Yourself
    Have a clear picture of what is important to you, your values, skills, personality, and abilities.  This is often easier said than done, but it is an important step in making a career choice, in deciding if you want to be self-employed.
  2. Know Your Options
    Become informed.  Learn about starting and running a business; interview people who have done this;  job shadow. Identify the occupations that most closely match your personality.
