I've earned a comfortable living and have been quite successful during my career as an employee.
Uncle Sam has also enjoyed my success and has helped himself to a hefty portion of my taxable income over the years. Did you know that income you earn as an employee is taxed at the absolute highest rate?
I decided to try my hand at becoming an entrepreneur and start my own home-based business as a licensed travel agent. Providing a service that my clients find valuable makes me feel valued, as well. I love to travel and this business is perfect for me. Best of all, I will enjoy tax advantages associated with owning my own business.
Another exciting perk is I can travel at discounted rates and enjoy perks only available to travel agents.
Anyone reading this at a time in your life when you may be interested in making the transition from employee to business owner, looking for something extra to do in your spare time or just love the travel industry, working as a travel agent may be perfect for you too!
