Some people use Zoondy as a stopgap to earn money while they are either looking for a job or hunting for full-time employment. Other people use Zoondy to launch a small business. They may be underemployed and need more cash to make ends meet or be bored with retirement or want to earn extra money for their children’s college fund or their own retirement fund. What often happens is that people who expect to use Zoondy as a short-term income solution discover that they enjoy being their own boss and decide to turn their Zoondy business into a full-time job.

Zoondy provides an excellent platform for selling your services (click here to find out how Zoondy works); but you may need help growing your business from a small-scale, individual effort into a larger company. As soon as you start moving beyond what you can do yourself, business becomes increasingly complex. And the farther beyond your own abilities you move, the more complex it becomes.

To grow your business, you may need to hire other independent contractors on Zoondy or hire local employees to meet customer demand. If you are producing a product, you may have material suppliers or subcontractors to deal with. When businesses grow quickly, you feel the pressure to fill orders and please customers. Finding time to research or address potential legal, tax or government regulations can fall through the cracks — and come back to haunt you!

If you’re planning to move your business to the next level and have no background in business management, you might want to invest some time in taking a few business courses at a local college. Learn how to write and follow a business plan, market your business, and keep the books. It is also wise to find a lawyer and accountant early on. They can advise you on the best way to structure your business to meet your goals while protecting your private assets from being affected by business matters.
