Self-Employment Is the Best Way to Make Money
Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to thank you for giving me the chance to make a presentation here.My name is Yan.Today, I’m going to talk about self-employment.
I plan to be brief, and I want to proof that self-employment is the best way for people to make money. Please interrupt me if there’s something unclear so that I can explain it for you. OK, let’s think about some questions. Have you ever thought about your job in the future? Do you admire those young and successful company owners because they have both money and good reputation [U]?
And do you want to be self-employed as well? Maybe we can start with a simple definition. What is self-employment? Self-employment is working for oneself. Self-employed people are always divided into 2 kinds——freelancers and entrepreneurs. By the way, entrepreneur means people who have their own companies. Freelancer means people who work for themselves as writers, painters, actors, and so on. Both of them can decide their schedules and enjoy the freedom. And they could make more money than employees for they don’t have the stable salary.
It’s a fact that most of the richest people in the world are also the founders of their own enterprises or brilliant freelancers, such as Bill Gates and J. K. Rowling. Besides a changeable schedule and a considerable income, self-employment can also be a good chance to improve working skills. It is true that working for oneself can have many difficulties. Employees can get payments by just finishing their simple assignments while employers have to control the whole project and make it be successful, so there’s no doubt that they can learn much more than those employees.
That’s why common workers always buy the biographies written by great self-employed leaders to learn their experience. Furthermore, the governments have introduced many policies to encourage people to create their self-employed career. Let me show you some examples. In Canada, if you are a young person, aged 18 – 34, ready to start your own business, the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) can provide courses, learning resources and business start-up loans. And self-employed Canadians can access Employment Insurance (EI) if they cannot work because they are pregnant or have to take care of their babies.
It’s really helpful. As for old people, self-employment is the best way to make money after they retired. According to a market research, there will be 14 million full-time, home-based freelancers and independent contractors in America by 2015, up from 12 million in 2010. Between 2008 and 2011, the number of self-employed Americans from age 55 to 64 rose by 5 percent. (data) All those facts and data show that self-employment has been the best way to make money, so why not choose to be your own boss from now? That are all my ideas. Thanks for listening, and I hope you have found this useful.
