Do a lot of things? Put it all under one roof.


June --

I do several things for work. Right now, I'm calling myself a technology consultant, since that seems to be the broadest range...
I'm a Software Developer
I'm a Website Designer
I'm a Search Engine Management specialist (I do online marketing to find customers for your website)

I'm an author (LEGO Robotics currently, more robotics and educational aspects of that field soon).
I do reviews of User Interfaces (for software and websites) and Business Process Automation.

I think all of those can be lumped under the "technology consultant" aspect. Everything is technology based...

What do you think?

Technology Consultant is what you are. Technology Services are what you offer.

Good question. And for others with a similar question: Ask yourself if you could easily separate one thing that you do from another thing that you do. If not, then they are likely the same profession.

What about those who are serial entrepreneurs? Often they will dabble in various areas doing research into new businesses with the intent to make a profit, which may or may not pan out to a full fledgling venture. How can one take advantage of any tax rules such as market research, etc?

If you are researching new businesses you must follow the regs for Start-up Costs.

For more info take a look at my post on 3/1/07 "More about START-UP COSTS: The expense of checking out a new business."
