What title for self-owned business or LLC on resume?


#1

I have a small business through which I design and sell merchandise online. I don't have full time employees but I do hire freelance designers from time to time. I am also still in college and in the process creating a resume. What would be my title for my business on my resume? CEO? Owner? Designer?
I of course, want to emphasize that I own the business myself and am not just employed there.

‘Principal” maybe?

I assume you want a resume to apply for jobs? You may run into the problem that people don't want to hire someone with an active business. I know people who have been asked to wind up their company before starting the job, which is probably illegal but such is life.

I can understand why though as if i ran a business and needed an employee would i hire someone who has their mind on making their own business run/grow or someone who is going to give me their full attention? probably the later.

Might just be worth making your situation clear on any cover letter etc
