I am a self-employed editor and proofreader. After three downsizings, I’ve found more work security in having a dozen clients who use my services on an as-needed basis, instead of having only one employer. I am not some sort of free-spirit moonlighter; this is how I make a living so I can afford to live in New Jersey.
My clients do business with me precisely because I offer flexibility to work on an as-needed basis, and because I’m not part of their head count. I am in compliance with all laws now in effect and pay all required taxes in a timely manner. By the way, I also pay out-of-pocket for my health care insurance coverage for a two-person household. There is no free ride for me as an independent contractor and LLC.
Please let me continue to work as a self-employed editor and proofreader
