| ||Ask: Stigma of the unemployed - a better job title for a lifestyle entrepreneur?|

|I run a small, unsexy internet business in Europe, with a two person office and about 20 people working from home.|
Around here, 'entrepreneur' is assumed to mean 'unemployed' or at best 'freelancer'. I'm dating at the moment and find it difficult to succinctly describe my occupation in a way that does not kill the conversation dead, as it either comes across as bragging or an attempt to disguise unemployment. It's major taboo here to talk figures or numbers.
So any ideas for pithy ways to describe a happy lifestyle entrepreneur without coming across as defensive?
