Careers Service Self-employment
If you want to be your own boss, and you have a good business idea, 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 that they can sell. For example, writing, graphic design, or tutoring. They can choose to do this from just a few hours a week to full-time. Entrepreneurs have a business idea that may involve a skill. But it's more likely to involve a product or service which needs to be developed, tested, and marketed.
