“To begin, if you started on this tab… hello… I’m Shelly… I want to help others… help themselves! Being self-employed is great, but it takes time amongst other things. There’s a plethora of information via my affiliate links within most images (please use them and thank you).  As well as, independent websites to assist you on your journey. 

Moreover, everyone has different paths and factors to consider/research… such as demographics or funding to name a few… so take your time… be proactive. To add, here’s a link for work from home opportunities that could possibly supplement your income.  Also, jobs are listed here. We All Can Land On The Path To Greatness”

Businesses that have or expect to have employees should incorporate before hiring them.

If you run your business as a sole proprietorship, you as an individual are liable and your personal assets are at risk.

However, if you have incorporated, the corporation or LLC is the employer and takes on this liability risk.

design a blog

It has never been easier to create blogs on WordPress. First, pick a domain name, then select a host. I love Dreamhost!

Second, install WordPress (it should be user-friendly guidelines via your host if not contact their tech support).  BlueHost is another host used by many bloggers.

GoDaddy is a well known option.

I selected a few companies, take time to research which one works for you.  HostGator is another popular choice.

Lastly, customize your blog and create content! I would like to try WPEngine one day.

WordPress has awesome tech support and customer service.  The platform is user friendly, and they offer tutorials. I opted for which means I self host via Dreamhost.  The combination is great for me and cost effective.
