I've had a lot of free time since I adjusted to working again. And the summer is long. I naturally wake up early and had a full day. What does one do when they get home at like 4?
I was approached by someone to do some part-time work. I figured this would be great because I could use the money and I had the time. I'd love to pay off my debt faster and have money to travel and take trips.
But naturally my full time job got busy and I had less time to work than I thought.
And then, someone else asked me to do some mindless work. I did that in a few hours. They liked it and then BOOM they want me to take on a lot more and upgraded the work to things I enjoy. Sure, the work is interesting - very similar to what I do regularly and a few hours....OK....but it turns out they didn't want a few hours.
Job #2 now contacts me saying they don't want to pay me as an PT employee and would rather I work independently. Job #3 doesn't have payroll in place, and I am to assume that they'd be paying me as a consultant as well. What to do?
Ideally, I'd love to be a consultant and work remotely. This way I can do my 'family' thing...even if it is just me and a kid. And I could live wherever I want (I've been thinking of moving again, to a smaller town). This is the end goal. How to get there?
So I decide I should incorporate.
I had a lot of questions...and I don't have an accountant or a lawyer. I only have a small amount of friends, and of those only one or two are consultants. I ask them a handful of questions.
I did a little bit of a 'rush' job....so I know this is temporary, eventually I'll need to restructure if I want to expand. I remember back to SI's consulting company and that would be a great thing...maybe. Having a few consultants working for you but then also the hassle and liability of having them.
I don't know....it's goals. It's something to work towards. I just need to figure out how to balance my time making everyone happy and not keep saying yes to more work when I don't have the time. But I like making people happy and saying no is hard.
I still want to date and have hobbies and enjoy my time in Colorado. We'll see what happens.
