In this video I’m going to give you guys 7 steps to become self employed without having to worry if your going to be sleeping in your car a month from now

7 Steps To Becoming Self-Employed

1. Set up an entity: get a CPA and also a business account
– As a normal w-2 employee, your employer is liable for anything that happens, and if any lawsuits happen, then it’s on them and not you.
– However: once your self employed that all changes

Results: Because he had a corporation, all the liability was on the business, and all he did was closed the corporation and said it had no money.
– If the city comes after the business, theirs no money to get

2. Decide whether you want to start a business or work for another company. Quit or Outsource
How does it work: Not all self-employment jobs are equal.
Example: Some people ask their boss to make them self employed, so they can write for expenses and have more freedom.
– And then some people go out their start their own business (riskier)
– Uber and those app that self-employed but already have a system established) ( most risky, because you don’t control anything, uber could be gone tomorrow, but at least you control your own business )

Questions: the route you want to go into, you have to decide.

3. Emergency Fund
If you quit your job or lose your job, while becoming self-employed, you’re going to want to have some security.

Tip: always keep your job until your side job make more than your main job

How-to: Figure out your monthly expense and multiply it by 6-12. You should have that much money in a high yield account in case anything goes wrong; you can take 6-12 months to figure it out.

4. Finance
Question: Should you finance or venture or start with what you have

Story: When I was college, I sold phones, sneakers, and a few other legal items. But before I left college, I took a 7000 dollars loan, that 7000 dollar loan today is worth almost 10-11x that.

My answer: No, don’t get finance until you have experience and grow the business organically and understand it. To many people finance to start a nonprofitable business.

Ps. Banks are smart, they’ll have some documentation saying that loan is backed by your personally also, and people that lend money will have you sign a good guy guarantee.

But… If you have a bank account and record, usually banks will offer you loans that are only for the business.

5. Prepare to Fail
Story: if you get used to failing then you’ll quickly start to succeed.

How to: When you start your first business, you’ll probably fail, the key is to figure out why?
– And 100% of the time when your self-employed its because of you, you can’t blame anyone including the economy.

6. Manage yourself
Pro of normal Job: Its structure, they tell you when to come, when to go, when to eat and what to do. It’s like living with your parents

What I do: Health, Wealth, Love and Happiness ( got it from tai )

7. Constant Growth
What happens after you win: Often the answer is people stop doing what got them there and they fail
– Or they keep doing the same thing, and they also fail

How to: the concept is, become a student of the game you choose to play, and that way you’re always 10 times ahead.

Bonus: How to pick a business

Hi Tommy, I don't watch your videos because I get bored of watching you 17 minutes straight. I am actually really interested in the topic of your videos but you don't interact with pictures or small videos of the topic that you are talking about. It's just a tip, just wanna help you. Keep the hard work.

Carla Cuadros says:

I'm currently a college student and have a checking account with "BankMobile". Could you make a review of this bank? Can you also provide a better option for college students? Do you think that I should keep this bank or is there a better choice?
