    Both my parents are self employed. My dad an artist, my mom a seamstress. I can track how the economy is doing simply by wether or not my dad has work. When the economy is good, people commision him for murals and paintings to decorate their homes and business’. My mom on the other hand is generally always busy. The difference when customers bring her old clothes to patch up or alter so they appear up to date means people are watching their spending. When they bring in duvees and curtains, and $500 pair of pants to hem they are out spending their money and the economy is smooth.

    After reading “Would You Go Into Business For Yourself During This Recession?” by Jacques Sprenger on January 16, 2009 in Small Business
    I agree that more people will be acting as contract workers/self employed. The real question is how little should a person work for to both help the economy but at the same time get value for their time? Where should a self-employed person draw the line of “what’s too little”?
