Description

Small Time Operator is one of the most popular business start-up guides ever. In clear, easy-to-understand language, the author covers:

*Getting permits and licenses
*How to finance a business
*Creating and using a business plan
*Choosing and protecting a business name
*Deciding whether to incorporate
*Establishing a complete bookkeeping system
*Hiring employees
*Federal, state, and local taxes
*Buying a business or franchise
*Dealing with-and avoiding-the IRS
*Doing business on the Internet
*Handling insurance, contracts, pricing, trademarks, and patents

In this new edition, the book will feature a section on surviving the Global Information Grid or GIG economy. The on-demand economy, also known as the sharing economy or the gig economy, is a new and greatly expanding business model that is basically nothing more than a mobile app that connects people who need some type of service-a ride, a delivery, a plumber, a house cleaner-with individuals who provide that service. There are hundreds of thousands of newly self-employed individuals. Uber alone claims that they have 160,000 workers just in California. The great majority of these on demand workers have zero experience or knowledge about self-employment. This book will give on-demand workers everything they need to know about being self-employed.
