Being your own boss

Being your own boss in the Netherlands

While the time is ripe and opportunities abound for persons wishing to become freelancers, there’s, often a gap between, knowing what to and successfully doing it. Perhaps more knowledge is required, more action, more experience, more courage and a number of other considerations.

The aim of this meetup is to provide participants with some insights and facilitated exchanges on how to kickstart your business as an independent professional/solo entrepreneur. We’ll consider the starting stage for making your transition into being your own boss, while also looking what it requires to create a sustainable business. We’ll look at business planning, strategy, and mindset, while including technical aspects relating to legal, tax and administration.

If you are thinking about becoming your own boss, or a solo entrepreneur looking to scale your activity, then this session is for you. You may even find that you're better off working for someone else, but this is an opportunity to explore that. If you are an experienced self-employed person then you’ll certainly have things to contribute to the group - and who knows, there may be opportunities for strategic collaborations.

We look forward to seeing you.
