I spent many years (1976-1994, and some on to 2009) working with people on their accounting and tax issues as well as general business practices as they converted their hobbies and personal interests into careers and small businesses (many tried, a few were successful). Therefore, a post that speaks to these issues, especially when they are well written and documented, always get my attention.
"Turning your genealogy hobby into a career" is a excellent post on this subject, based on the 4 questions from Rebecca Thebault (reference in the post) for general application.
As usual, Michael 'tells it like it is' based on his personal experience as well as a disciplined analysis. My thirty plus years experience as an advisor in the area confirms what is written in this post. Be sure to read the comments, of course, as well.
What do you think? Have you made the transition? Are you considering it? Do you agree or disagree with this presentation? Comments welcomed.
P.S. Let's do two this week:
To good to pass up up: "All I Really Need to Know about Genealogy I learned in Kindergarten." Thanks, again, Elizabeth! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
