Description

Becoming an Independent Contractor

Facilitator: Meredith Perich- Business Facilitator with Business Link

  • Meredith loves to see thriving communities, and believes small business to be at the heart of them. At Business Link, she excitedly works to support entrepreneurs, as a ‘go-to’ in helping them navigate the landscape of regulatory and licensing requirements, and providing market research support to clients. She is happy to be involved on a micro level, getting to know individuals and their own personal experiences in self-employment.

    Usual weekend activities for Meredith include visiting the Farmers’ Market or taking off to enjoy the mountains. She owns a guitar, but is regrettably still really bad at playing it.


What is an independent contractor: Employee vs Contractor, pros and cons of independent contracting.

  • Getting your business started, what steps are involved: business plan requirements, financing, choosing your business structure, naming & registering your business, getting your licenses & permits, business number & taxes, insurance and safety requirements.

  • Finding Work: procurement, finding contract opportunities, and pre-qualification.

  • RFP Process: provides an overview of the proposal writing process.
