Default Self Employed Info...

Please excuse my lack of knowledge I am very new to all of this

I have wanted to move to USA for many years and have discounted it as I assumed, possibly rightly, that it was almost impossible for me.

Time is passing and recently I have realised just how short life is and so I have decided just to explore the idea a little and find out information rather than discounting the idea totally. I really have no idea where to look or find information but searching tonight brought up this forum so here I am!!!

At the moment I am self employed therapist. I have always assumed my qualifications didnt stand in USA. However I decided to find out once and for all and a few days ago I emailed a fellow therapist in Arizona, which is where I would like to go if it was possible. I was very surprised to hear that my qualifications are just fine and I wouldnt need any extra training! She gave me some great in debth info that is specific to Arizona and also the work that I do. Basically nothing in that area is not a problem at all, which has shocked me and made me wonder if it could be possible after all for me to move to Arizona.

Ive never heard of anyone moving to USA and being self employed. It must be possible but I have no idea what it would entail so any information or pointers where I could find out would be very nice.

Thanks

That wiki should answer most of your questions.

Basically unless you've got oddles of cash to invest in a business, have someone sponsor you for a work visa, or marry in, there's generally very little options.
