Business Essentials That You Need to Know Before Starting Your Career as an Independent Statistical Consultant (303100)

*Stephen Simon, P.Mean Consulting 

Keywords: Accounting, Billing, Contracts, Insurance

A career as an independent statistical consulting is very rewarding, but it demands that you learn many new business and legal skills, skills that you probably didn't learn in graduate school. We will review the administrative details in setting up a new business, including accounting, insurance, contracts and billing. This is not intended as a substitute for talking to a professional accountant and a lawyer, but should help you become aware of the issues and questions that you need to raise with them.
