Lessons Learned by a 15 Year Freelancer
Being a freelancer can seem daunting at times. You get to be your own boss, but much of the responsibilities fall solely on your shoulders. This can be difficult for beginners to navigate without any prior experience.
Ryan Vinson jumped head first into the world of freelancing just as the Internet bubble was bursting in 2000. Companies were all slashing jobs, and it was clear to him that he could no longer rely on a steady office job. He had no choice but to create a small business and start finding clients of his own. This would prove to be a challenging task between the sinking economy and not having any past experience at running a company of his own.
No matter what difficulty, sickness, travel plan, or unforeseen event that came his way, Ryan learned how to be ready for anything over the past 15 years as a small business owner. Many friends and colleagues have often asked him for advice about running a business of their own. After being asked enough times, Ryan started writing down the advice he gave.
The book Disregarded Entity is a collection of those lessons, methods, and stories from his 15 years as a self-employed small business owner.
