Reality Check: Why does Los Alamos not support local business?
When the Monitor listed my candidacy, they had me as “musician.” That’s true enough, but it would have been equally true if they had listed me as “musician/business owner ( - man, - person, however you want to put that).”
“Business owner?” A musician as a business owner? Do you normally consider the one as synonymous with the other?
Would it help if you know that I have been a free-lance musician, doing my own promotion, getting my own bookings and working solo for more than 25 years, that I file a schedule C and SE just like any other business, that I have a business license and pay GRT just like any other business?
What, actually, is a business owner? Okay, here in Los Alamos, I own Hannemann Music, which is, in part, a retail music dealership. But it is also a home-based business.
Is “home-based” a “business?” What, actually, is a business? Would it help if I tell you that along with having the license and paying the GRT, I earn my living solely from my business and have done so, on the musician side of things, for almost 30 years?
