Self employment
   CAREER OPTIONS: SELF EMPLOYMENT

Whereas agents, consultants, and people in talent pools may be viewed as self-employed, this term typically refers to individuals who develop, market and deliver their goods and/or service. It is a one-person operation. Examples of these are: corporate trainer, fitness trainer, home inspector, paralegal, meeting events planner, public relations specialist, security consultant, web site designer, etc. A more recent language for this form is called the SOHO (single operator / home office).

These individuals are excellent self-managers as they are confident and determined. They believe in their product or service 100%. These ventures can be riskier, as they do not have a supporting cast of others directly involved in their business. For some, this level of enterprise expands to entrepreneurship.
