The main reason for me to engage in light entrepreneurship was to earn extra income and maintain my carpenter skills. As a novice entrepreneur, bookkeeping and tax matters seemed challenging, so it was easy to choose the OP Light Entrepreneur service, where these matters were taken care of, and my questions were answered.Juuso, Carpenter
I started as an OP Light Entrepreneur years ago when I was asked to take on the role of a social media strategist for a company. That's when I realized I could easily offer my services to other businesses as an OP Light Entrepreneur, and also invoice influencer collaborations through the service. Joining Light Entrepreneur service became necessary when I had accidentally turned my hobby into a business. As a student, the additional earnings as an OP Light Entrepreneur have been extremely important.Heini, Social media strategist
