Dear Sophie: Can I start a business or a side business with a TN visa?
I am a Canadian citizen working under a TN visa as a software engineer in the US. I want to start my own business or at least make money through a side business.
Is this possible on my TN, or can I only do it via a green card? If yes, is it possible to get permanent residency as the TN is for non-immigrant intent?

We’re going to rename this section to “Big Apple” just for today, because half of the stories came from our team’s rush to cover the Apple iPhone 14 event. Brian, Kylea, hi, Amanda, Ivan, Romain and Sarah bring you the good stuff about SIM cards, AirPods and stuff, so many details about the Apple Watch. It’s too much to list here, but you can read all the stories on our dedicated Apple iPhone 14 event hub.
