If you want to be your own boss, and you have a good business idea, then you may be considering self-employment. You might even be considering starting this while you are studying.
Freelancer or entrepreneur, what's the difference?
Freelancers generally have a skill which they can sell, for example writing, graphic design, tutoring. They can choose to do this from just a few hours a week to full-time. Entrepreneurs have a business idea which may involve a skill but is more likely to involve a product or service which needs to be developed, tested and marketed.
