Advice for a new BI 1099?

I’m about to start a gig as a 1099 Background Investigator. I haven’t started my LLC process yet here in Maryland. Any advice for the LLC or the BI career? TIA!

A lot of people say you need to hire an attorney to set up the LLC. Depends on the state but you should at least check and see if you can do it on your own. The two states I have done it in were very easy.

As far as being a 1099, there will be a learning curve to get through before you are efficient enough to make good money. In the mean time, enjoy not having any metrics, forced work, mandatory meetings, a boss looking over your shoulder or having to ask for permission to take a day off or quit for the day at 11 am.


Thanks Cal, I appreciate your comments!
