Doing part-time self-employed: tips and tricks

Part-time self-employment and its disadvantages

  • Remember that you are also taking on a double burden of being self-employed as a part-time job and giving up time for family and private life.
  • Check whether the time you have available is sufficient to successfully run a company on a part-time basis before you start your own business on a part-time basis.
  • In the case of potential customers, the fact that they are self-employed as a part-time job can be interpreted disadvantageously. The same applies to partners and suppliers.
  • Due to your main occupation, you are less flexible in terms of time to react to urgent customer requests if you are self-employed as a part-time job.
  • Starting a part-time business can also fail - you then have to work off any debts with your salary.
