Welcome to the World of Self Employment

Self-employment refers to the practice of working for oneself, rather than being an employee of a company or organization. Self-employed individuals are responsible for generating their own income and are typically considered to be small business owners or entrepreneurs.

There are many benefits to being self-employed, including the ability to set your own schedule and work at your own pace, the freedom to choose your own clients and projects, and the potential to earn a higher income. However, self-employment also comes with its own set of challenges, including the need to manage your own finances, handle the business aspects of your work, and find new clients and projects.

Self-employment can take many forms, including running a small business, freelancing, or working as an independent contractor. No matter what form it takes, self-employment requires a certain level of independence, motivation, and discipline to be successful. If you are considering self-employment, it is important to carefully consider the pros and cons and ensure that you have the skills and resources needed to succeed.


We’ve Set the table… Lets Eat 

Okay now that we’ve set the stage. Let’s talk about Real Estate…


Real estate agents are self-employed professionals who work independently to help clients buy and sell properties. They are not employees of a company, but rather operate their own businesses and are responsible for generating their own income.

One of the main benefits of being a self-employed real estate agent is the freedom and flexibility it offers. As a self-employed agent, you have the ability to set your own schedule and work as much or as little as you want. This can be especially appealing for agents who have other commitments or interests outside of work.

However, being self-employed also comes with a number of challenges. As a real estate agent, you are responsible for generating your own leads and finding clients, which can be a time-consuming and challenging task. You also need to be self-motivated and disciplined, as there is no boss to hold you accountable for meeting deadlines or achieving goals.

The Home Stretch

In addition to these challenges, real estate agents must also be skilled in a number of areas in order to be successful. They need to be knowledgeable about the local real estate market, as well as the laws and regulations that govern the industry. They must also be able to effectively communicate and negotiate with clients, and be able to handle the financial aspects of transactions.

Despite these challenges, being a self-employed real estate agent can be a rewarding and fulfilling career. With the right skills and determination, you can build a successful business and enjoy the freedom and flexibility that comes with being your own boss.

This is where choosing the right brokerage comes into play. The right brokerage can help set you up for success in terms of training and assisting in transactions.
