Your Service Business Success Guide
As highlighted in our Service Business Success Guide, people are increasingly ditching their 9-to-5 jobs and starting businesses where they offer services directly to customers. Many people are either doing this online, offering services like IT or website building, or using the Internet for free advertising for offline services like pet-sitting or appliance repair. The world of the Internet and the economic landscape have created the perfect conditions for this transition.
According to a survey by FreshBooks, 27 million Americans will leave full-time jobs from 2018 through 2020, bringing the total number of self-employed to about 42 million.
Take a moment to consider that number. 42 million people is a fairly staggering number. Compare that to the 126 million people working full-time in the U.S. in 2017. And that’s just in the United States!
One of the biggest reasons, according to the report from FreshBooks, is that people want to be able to choose their clients and the work they do with those clients.
Doubtless, one of the other key reasons for this high number of aspiring self-employed is the ease of starting your own business offered by the internet.
Most people who are self-employed find it easier than they expected and enjoy their newfound freedom and independence so much, they never consider going back to the old routine. However, there are problems that service businesses face, especially in the early days. The purpose of this blog post and course is to prepare you for these challenges so that you can meet them successfully.
