Independent Contractor vs. Employee

When you think about work and do some research you will realize there are different ways to work for the purpose of earning an income. Some companies you work for as an employee and then there are some you can work for as an independent contractor. The cool thing is you can work as an independent contractor for some company’s at the same time you are working for another as an employee. You don’t have to settle for one low amount of income by just working for one company as an employee. Most of us Americans have been taught that a low hourly paying job is the right way to earn a living. In my family this is what I was taught and my parents are living that type of American dream where you only have enough money to survive from one month to the next month.

I would have to say I was lucky back when I worked in the heating and air conditioning industry because it was very common in this industry to work as an independent contractor instead of an employee. I first worked as an independent contractor for Airtron and then Willis, at one point I not only worked for both of these companies but others as well. I really liked working as an independent contractor in the heating and air conditioning industry because it gave me the freedom to come and go as I wanted to. The freedom to work when and how much I wanted to was by far the best way for me to work at that time in my life.

In today’s world the opportunity’s to work as an independent contractor are everywhere around us, you may not have noticed yourself but they are out there. I have spent a lot of my time researching the different ways to work as an independent contractor and think that working as a brand representative is the best way for me. There are a lot of company’s that are set up to let the happy loyal customers work for them as a brand representative. There are a lot of terms used to describe this type of work. Network and Affiliate marketing is the most common way to describe these types of company’s but you will also see terms like referral and relationship marketing used as well. The basic concept is that you most first become a happy loyal customer and that is what gives you the ability to earn a commission based income for finding new people to become customers. It isn’t as easy as just going out to sign people up to be a customer, you have to give people a reason to become a customer, you have to find ways to teach people about the company and their products and services, you have to become a true brand representative for the company and their products and services.

After doing a lot of research I picked a company called Global Domains International to become a brand representative for, I like everything about the company and will be sharing more about them in more post here at this blog.
