    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I have to “officially” start a business?

    You do not need to start a corporation in order to start freelancing and get paid in most states. However, starting an official legal entity has some major benefits:

  • It protects your personal assets if you get sued.
  • It protects your personal assets if you default on loans.
  • It allows you to set up a business bank account, which makes invoicing, keeping track of deductible expenses, and taxes simpler.
  • How is being a freelancer different from being an employee?

    Most newbies go into freelancing expecting that clients are just like mini-bosses. In fact, the relationship between a client and you is very different than the relationship between your boss and you at your day job. Freelancers have a certain definition that is protected by the Department of Labor:

  • Freelancers can work where they want
  • Freelancers can work when they want (obviously deadlines are good, but the client can’t tell you that you have to work 11am-2pm).
  • Freelancers have the right not to be micromanaged. If the client is hiring you as a freelancer, they shouldn’t be training you extensively or giving you exact instructions about how to complete your work. A freelancer should be treated as a valuable outsider, not as a low-level intern.
  • Freelancers have the right to take on any additional clients they choose.
  • What web browser should I use?
