I found my work life to be mostly pretty breezy once I began running my own small business. I have no employees to deal with. I am the only person running things, so I am very much self-employed. I am happier than I ever have been when it comes to work. When I felt that I would prefer running the company from a home, I decided to buy one. I ended up going to the Mortgages4.contractors website to get everything all worked out in the end.
As I said, I thought everything would be breezy as a contractor. I knew that my health insurance would cost me a pretty penny, and that turned out to be true. It really was nice to have most of that paid for by my previous employer, but that was only because the money that pays for that, and is part of my benefits package, was paid directly by my employer to the insurance company. So, it is not like I did not have to pay for it. Yet working on my own, it was a struggle to see that money disappear. Not only that, you do not get a discount when you buy it as an individual.
But when it came to buying a home, I was first told that it would not be possible since I had only been working on my own for 6 months. This made no sense considering that I had been with a company for 10 years before. That should have been a solid track record to show my work ethic. I thought I would be out of luck, much like I was with insurance, but that is when I found a company that is willing to lend money to people like me for a home. I applied, and I was approved for a mortgage soon after.
