Each week BusinessDesk and the NZ Herald's Cooking the Books podcast tackles a different money problem. Today, it's how to make self-employed life work for you. Hosted by Frances Cook.

In an ideal world it allows you to focus on the projects that you find most fulfilling, and say no to the work you've always suspected was a waste of your time anyway.
Starting your own business can also be a great way to boost your wealth, as if you do well, you keep all the rewards in your own pocket.

Many also get into self-employed life, and find out the reality of the work day is quite different from what they expected.
So, what are some tips from a person who's doing all of this, and is ready to share the good, bad, and ugly of it?
