Put the “Self” Back into Self-Employed

Recent data available from the Census Bureau suggests that almost 11,000 Humboldt County residents identify as self-employed.  If you own and operate your own business, you’ve likely had occasion to consider California’s employment laws.  There is a great local resource for employers in Humboldt and Del Norte counties.  The Northcoast Employer’s Advisory Council meets regularly, typically in Eureka, to discuss the state of the law and help employers keep up to date on information.  You can visit the website here(link is external).       
Also, attend a luncheon or seminar for networking opportunities.  It always helps to remember that other employers face many of the same issues and have to answer the same questions.  Maybe the lessons learned at a NEAC function can help you return to the business of running your business.
