Someone i ran into told me they do not have a social insurance number and get along in life just fine being the owner of a company. It apparently takes some effort to set yourself up like like this, but there are some obvious advantages and disadvantages. Actually they only really spoke of the advantages. I am wondering if anyone here that lives this way, or knows someone who does and can shed any insight into the pros and cons of living this "lifestyle" that are not so obvious?
