Well I am at the crossroads again. The decisions I make in the next month could shape not only my immediate future but also my career. I have started seriously investigating going to work for myself. Not working for someone else but working for myself. There are various pluses and minuses that I would be foolish not to moll over in detail before taking this on. In the mean time I am going to look into seriously getting involved in the community. I will report back later with more.

Ohhh... going into work for yourself would be an interesting proposition, if you can get a bit of capital together.

In other news, you can pretty much bet you won't pay taxes for a couple years...

Ugh. Taxes. Don't even want to /think/ about that crap. Next time, I'm hiring a CPA, handing them all the papers, and just signing it when they're done. I don't even know if I did mine right, despite all the Turbotax instructions and error-checking. Too complex, what with selling stocks, moving out of state, having 2 employers, and other stuff. *blargh*

We can scrape together enough to get him started, I think. Maybe not for a couple of months, but soon. We'll see.

Depending on the specifics of what he wants to do, you might be able to get started with a number of grants etc...

You'll do fine wherever you end up.

(Although the taxes... are probably best handled by a professional.)

A C said, taxes (and indeed probably the majority of accounts unless you know it well) are best done by a professional. However, if the accountants over there are anything like the ones here I'd strongly recommend only going for either big ones or ones recommended purely by word-of-mouth with long track records. And if possible, try to make sure that any contract with them includes a clause that makes them responsible for errors: my first and second-hand experiences of accountants is that all too many appear capable and honest up until their incompetence or deception lands their customer in trouble while they walk away without a penalty.

And good luck and enjoy yourself - working for yourself is an incredible feeling when you get it all set up.
