Being self-employed certainly has its perks. You can work when you want, and you get paid when you need the money and have enough to cover business expenses. Most self-employed people also work from home, making it easier to manage household tasks and being present for their children and spouses.

There are accounting services for these folks, and there are related tax laws in Canada that cut breaks for the self-employed.
