Steps to Become Self-Employed?
Musonda Ernest Kabwe, Other, Zambia

I am an employee of a certain company, and I would like to become self-employed and my own employer. I have an interest in farming.
I have done transport and logistics management, and automotive technique but I am tired of being an employee.
How should I go about this?

Things to Consider before Self-employment
De Monte, Other, Canada
- Know your skill to develop a service.
- Decide if you would like to be a sole proprietor, a partnership of colleague/s or obtain investors that believe in your skill and service potential.
- Set an effective business plan to efficiently organize your hired workforce to economically/ sustainably direct & control time, resources and budgets to trace and analyse to account, prioritize and make wise decisions.
- Be fully aware that with owning also comes 24 hour responsibility to make your business run well, considering your needs, those of your partner/employees if any, and most importantly those of your customers.
This is not easy and it is demanding and you must be prepared to sacrifice what is not important to your service. Eliminate, reduce, minimize and focus, concentrate and deliver only what is important to your business.
The reward is respect, repeat business and earning your own living while helping your community survive, grow and flourish.
Good luck. Sal.

Thank you.

Becoming Self-employed

De Monte has said it all. Nothing can replace a well-thoughout business plan. A lot of effort will go into the plan, so make sure you use it as a blueprint to measure your progress, revising it, or, as it were, repositioning you business to head towards your goal.
I want to emphasise the need for constant review, so that your efforts will not go waste.
Self-employed? Good idea, but ultimately see yourself as a business owner, aiming to set up systems in place in order for the business to run without your personal intervention ever so often. Good luck.

Your should surround yourself with people that want you to progress and that share your vision. Have confidence in yourself, and most of all: start small, but think big.
