    Youngest child is over 20 years. Back then there was NO maturnity leave. Doubly when self employed. The self employed get no government aid in any way. Insurance was and continues to be highest expense.

Your opinions matter. Speak up. As I work for a company owned by my husband and myself. This is a tough question.

    Work is cyclical. It's more demanding around the first day of the month and tax time.

Working for yourself can be a little difficult. Because I have no help. I build my own sites and I promote my own products

Self employment gives you flexibility and can be beneficial if you can secure benefits and manage a stead income.

Work for yourself! It's stressful but worth it in the end.

    I don't have children nor will I :-) That would be a nice option to click on above. You say "I didn't take maternity leave 'here".

    Maybe. I am an independent contractor (1099 job) selling many lines. This job is only good if you have a second job, rep other lines or don't need to make much. You were from work and are left alone which is great for someone who needs that. They must be prepared to hit the road often though.

I enjoy working for myself, and I think the flexibility and autonomy I have outweighs the difficulties and responsibilities which can come from being self-employed.

    I can give myself more flexibility than a traditional employer would. But at the same time, I am also responsible for my business, so sometimes flexibility is not an option.

    I am desiring to do something different than I have been doing, and I would like to work remotely. I am still interested in remaining self-employed, though.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. I am self-employed and do not have any employees, so the answer is difficult to quantify.

Working for yourself is hard but rewarding work! If you've dreamt of starting your own business begin your side hustle and slowly work your way to a successful business.
