Becoming self-employed, and starting your own business have been increasing in popularity over the years. With the downturn in Calgary market, we’ve seen an increase in business licenses in the past year or two – basically ever since oil has crashed. When I speak to my colleagues out in Toronto the sentiment is similar, it’s 2018, and there are a lot more start-ups and entrepreneurial souls… millennials want to change the world and add value and this is how they are planning on doing it.
Being self-employed is challenging, and while on the outside looking in it can seem glamorous, there are many times where it is anything but that. There are times when you might have to skip a paycheque, eat KD for dinner, and stay up late wondering if there is any possible way to make this work.
