I decided to become a 1 man

I decided to become a 1 man show (plus my wife) a few years ago. All of the burdens associated with having employees became too much of a hassle. The extra income generated simply wasn't worth the headaches.

Independent contractors vs. employees is a can of worms. Fed Ex claimed it's drivers were IC's for years. I haven't been following the court case to see what the courts decided. They may now have to treat them as employees...like UPS.

Depending on your business model, IC status works. In other business models, the IRS may come knocking.
