If you have ever thought about self-employment, the Self Employment Pro™ will be highly effective in identifying the ideal self-employed business for you.

This self-assessment profile does not judge whether or not you are suited for self-employment, but rather directs you into the most appropriate type of self-employment opportunity.

The Self Employment Pro™ analyzes the key inherent characteristics and attitudes that influence entrepreneurial success. It can help predict which of the four major entrepreneurial business environments a person is most naturally suited to:

  • Agent/representative
  • Consulting/contract
  • Franchises
  • Small business

Use the Self Employment Pro™ to understand your ideal self employment environment and develop a career strategy.

Transitioning to a Self Employed Role

Many individuals dream of self-employment but are risk adverse. The Self Employment Pro™ reduces the risk and has helped many individuals make the transition to self-employment.

With this tool, you will finally have a road map to identify suitable opportunities and create a plan to explore the specific environments that match your individual strengths and characteristics.

Combined with our “6 Steps to Self Employment” book – a guide to helping individuals develop satisfying, successful self-employment opportunities – and our proprietary coaching/counselling program, the Self Employment Pro™ has given many individuals the confidence to seek out opportunities within their risk tolerance and available financial resources.

Since 1978, SMG has provided career management services to individuals from most job families and career paths. Our approach is to build on strengths and focus individuals on what they can do rather than what they can’t do.

Many successful career changers have transitioned into self-employment on a part-time basis until they have the cash flow and customer base to support and expand their current lifestyle.
