After moving 1,800 miles from the Cincinnati, Ohio area to Scottsdale, Arizona I’m finally settled down enough to attempt to get some blogging and work done. That is, when I can tear my eyes away from the palm trees and stop picking oranges, grapefruit and lemons from the trees in my backyard.
“What work are you doing these days?” you might ask. (I know, I know –- no one asked, but I’m falling back on my imaginary friends to voice these questions)
Aside from digesting citrus and giggling at everyone who lives roughly above the 35th parallel line (even YOU Amarillo – unnaturally cold and windy place that you are), I’m now doing work for a friend that requires me to be an independent contractor. Thus I am beginning to delve into the mysteries and myths surrounding sole proprietorship and the United States tax laws which are rapidly beginning to look like a Vorticistic painting created by inebriated wombats falling down stairs.
If anyone has any tips, I’d appreciate some guidance. In the interim, I’m going back to reading some of the many helpful articles over at business.gov.
I’ll post what I find along the path to self-employment.
