Let the Games Begin  -  by Laura Curtis

The “B” factor (i.e., the same line of business) is the real kicker here. Let’s use a hairstylist as an example. He rents a chair in a salon, has his own book of business, makes his own schedule, sets his own rate of pay, and has his own cosmetology license. Yet, he is in the same line of business as the salon.
