Advice for self-employed people

What’s one piece of advice you’d offer someone starting out in self-employment today? :thinking:

My top three tips would be to:

  • Use contracts from early on (I use Bonsai), don’t wait to get burned, and take deposits.
  • Seek out a mentor or hire a coach if you can afford it to help you navigate the early days and be by your side.
  • Start building a Safety Net fund early so you can be more resilient, once that’s built start contributing to your pension (even if it’s very little to start with; I use Penfold).

I hope that helps!
