Join the self-employed revolutionAbridged: USA Today

MCLEAN, VA -- It's no secret that the nature of work is changing rapidly right now. More people are working outside of an office and outside the traditional 9-5 job. A whole new generation of workers are similarly discovering that they don't need that job they once thought was so indispensable. It's a revolution, a self-employment revolution.

There are many things that have come together to create this self-employment revolution. And fortunately, technology has made that doable. Whether it's computers and software, smartphones and apps, websites and searches, the fact is, being successfully self-employed today is quite possible. Jobs are in scarce supply, and underemployment is a serious problem. Things look bleak. But, truth be told, there has never been a better time for individuals to start new businesses. Taking up entrepreneurship is a way to overcome unemployment and underemployment. Additionally, thanks to the rise of virtual office services and co-working spaces, working from home is the new norm.

But this begs the question - how exactly do you do it? Fortunately, there are some valuable resources out there to help. Franchises are becoming more and more popular as a way for people to buy and own their own business. The Small Business Administration and its website SBA.gov and SCORE also have a vast amount of information and resources available for starting and running a small business.
