Being self-employed means you work for yourself in a business of your own choosing. Whilst this brings freedom and enjoyment, it can also bring long hours as you are responsible for how much money you earn.
- Types of employment status @ Direct.Gov
Excerpt: Self-employed people are usually identified by the fact that they are in business for themselves and provide a service to multiple clients. Self-employed people are generally more independent than workers. They have far greater control over how and when to deliver the service and who delivers it. They will usually be better able to protect their own commercial interests, although they will bear any financial risk from the business they operate.
