you are just Self Employed. You are your  own boss, but you are not a

Now you can say you are a freelancer and doing well at it. That's all. Do
not provide income or client names or anything unless it's a closing gotcha,
I mean if it is necessary for the deal.

I have had people try to nose into my business, and pry their way into my
