SELF EMPLOYED LEGAL PROFESSIONALS:
“I love being self-employed. For years, I worked for other people and was relatively happy. However, I always had a nagging feeling that I wanted to strike out on my own. I wanted more freedom. I wanted control over my own destiny. And now that I’ve finally made the move, I’ll do whatever it takes to never look back.” Solicitor, Anonymous
There is a lot to love about self-employment. You have the freedom to make your own choices and decisions. You can set your own hours, build your own investment (rather than somebody else’s) and never have to ask off for time off for vacation or family events. Of course, you don’t get paid when you go on vacation either, so there is definitely a balance that needs to be struck. Here are a few financial benefits of being self-employed. Want a raise? Either work harder, drum up more business, or both.
With self-employment, you get to reap what you sow, which means your earning potential is only limited by your ideas and your work ethic. This is huge, but also comes with a lot of responsibility, remember you only get paid for the work you actually do, not for simply showing up. Save money on transportation - if you’re lucky enough to run your business out of your home, you can save a bundle on commuting costs to and from the office. You probably don’t think about how much it costs you to travel to work, because it’s become habit for you. Save money on clothing - again, while this isn’t true for all self-employed individuals, if you’re able to work from home you can save money throughout the year on clothing costs. Those working in a professional office atmosphere have to dress the part. Even if you don’t have to wear a suit every day, you’re still expected to look professional. Unlimited income potential - one of the greatest rewards of self-employment is the opportunity to make an unlimited amount of income. Unlike most jobs in the corporate world, your salary is never capped. You are in control of how much money you ultimately make.
So if you want creative freedom, independence, job satisfaction, choice of location, earning potential and variety, please call Lauren on 0161 850 0745 for a confidential discussion to find out more.
“You handled my application with the utmost professionalism and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my professional peers seeking a new position. I was particularly impressed that you periodically touched base with the firm and updated me throughout the application process. Thank you again for your hard work.” – Candidate testimonial
“I have used ENL for a few years now. Melanie put me in touch with Lauren when I expressed the need for a locum solicitor. Lauren contacted me and immediately I could tell that she knew the business that she is in. She questioned me about what I wanted in locum and the requirements of the firm. I felt confident in her abilities to the extent that I did not even reach out to other agents I use to search for a suitable locum. I felt that from our conversation I could just leave it in her hands. This panned out to be true. Within a few hours I had a number of CV’s and from that we chose a suitable candidate. Lauren made the process extremely efficient, so much so I had very little to do. This is exactly what we want and I will be when the time comes using Lauren’s service again.” – Client testimonial
