I also know that there are other tasks you can do on there not just the ones that I am hired for. I have an agency on there where I hire other virtual assistants. Maybe this can be helpful to some of you.

I ran the bar for about 5 years. Between my partner and I we built the bar from scratch, we put the kitchen in, and the bar. We added 25 pool tables. I designed the menu and priced everything.

I recently was laid off from a job I had for nearly 8 months. I work for a Temp Labor provider here in Delaware so there were no benefits offered by the construction company I was contracted to. I am very good at re-finishing and repairing furniture so my question is what do I need to do (legally) to have my own business?
