So, you want to be your own boss, master of your own time and talent?

Quitting your 9-5 and going self-employed is the dream for many of us, but also comes with some very real world problems to consider.

Freedom to choose your own hours comes with greater responsibility – you’ve got to make sure there’s enough money coming in. No boss to call if you need a day off sick, also means there no company to pay you when you’re sneezing under the duvet.

But if you navigate the tax system well, and follow some smart advice, going self-employed can be incredibly lucrative. You could end up making a lot more cash running the show than when you were just a bit part player.

Sam and Laura are on hand to guide you through the snakes and ladders of self-employment.

With the aid of accountant extraordinaire Julia Rosenbloom, first-hand freelance experience from our very own Producer Joel, and a burning question from Mandy of Oxfordshire, this episode shows you how to make money for yourself, rather than someone else.
