Would you become an Employee or an Entrepreneur…What is right for you?
For instance, if you might decide to work as a virtual assistant, you could choose to work as an employee or you can set up your own business. Just remember, there are pros and cons to each arrangement.
When you work as an employee, you don’t have to invest any money up front or find your own clients, but your pay rate, work hours, and how you work will be more restricted. However, if you’re hired on as an independent contractor or a freelancer — you are considered self-employed and will need to pay quarterly self-employment taxes.
On the other hand, when you set up your own business, you have more flexibility with scheduling, choosing clients, and setting your rates, but you’ll also have to find your own clients, set up your business, and pay self-employment taxes. Setting up a virtual assistance business is easy and has relatively low start-up costs.
Some items you’ll need to get started are a phone line or cell phone, a computer, high-speed internet access, a printer, and scanner, and a website to market your business.
