general revenue sharing
Generally, when the IRS says that you are self-employed, you are in a different league. When you are self-employed, you are not subject to the same taxes as someone who is a sole proprietor. The reason is because you are the business owner. In fact, I have two websites for people who are self-employed.
Self-employed people are basically like freelancers. They have to figure out how to make money so they can stay afloat. They can do it like a business, but they are basically a freelancer until you find the right kind of business.
I see this as an upside to the self-employment business model. By being self-employed, the freelancer is able to get paid without having to pay taxes. This is an advantage that freelancers have. They can pay their bills with whatever currency they happen to be using at the time, and if that currency is a foreign exchange currency (like USD), there is no tax on that transaction.
It’s a good idea, but if you’re not careful you can end up losing money by not keeping up with your expenses. I see this as an advantage to freelancers, because it is much harder to get caught out when expenses go out of control. You can’t say, “Oh, it’s $1000, but I’m only going to spend it on food because I’m self-employed.
Well, if you’re working as a freelancer, you might be able to get away with it. But, it can be a bad idea to let your expenses go out of control. If you’re spending more than you’re making, you might end up losing money. I know a lot of people who are just over-extended and just can’t seem to keep up with their expenses.
So, let’s say you have a friend, or someone you know, who is a freelance writer. That friend is doing really well. But, one day, he stops paying his freelancer and is going into deep debt. This is fine, but it can get out of control. So is it worth it to pay someone a thousand dollars to do the work for you? I dont know about you, but I would rather pay a hundred dollars.
The first thing to do is to figure out what you need for him. Make sure that you are paying him a nice amount (that he is comfortable with) and that he is comfortable with your money. If you are paying him more than that, it means you are doing a lot more work for him and he will have to do a lot more work for you. So, you should probably pay him a fair amount.
What I don’t understand is why some companies do not have a formal pricing structure for their services. Even if the money is divided equally, most people would not be happy with a thousand dollars and some companies have a hard time letting their customers see this. Some companies even have guidelines that dictate which items are included in a fixed price.
Why would you not pay a reasonable price for your services? Companies are doing this all the time, and it is what they do. I would not pay more than I have to for anything I would use, so I don’t give a shit about it. The thing that pisses me off is that companies will pay you thousands of dollars for something you should have spent less than a penny on.
