Michael H. Karu, CPA/CFF, Member, Levine, Jacobs & Company, LLC., was highlighted on CNBC.com where he discussed the financial concerns of becoming your own boss.

While setting out on your own can be rewarding money-wise, it can also be a financially risky move. According to Michael H. Karu, a partner with CPA firm Levine Jacobs & Co. in Livingston, N.J., “Consider whether you can afford to give up a regular paycheck and if you can stomach the uncertainty. You have to be comfortable not getting that paycheck,”

He continues, “How you set up shop depends largely on factors such as your anticipated income, your expenses, and the desired liability protection, Karu said. You’ll also want to consider whether you plan to hire employees and whether you want everything to flow through your personal return.”
