Don't trust anyone. Especially when it comes to things like this, I've learned that the people that are closest to you will hurt you the worst. If you were a good employee at your job then hopefully they will take you back. Good luck with that : )

Eh, that depends on the OP's former job and their policies, oc. If OP was working in the same field, then once they do the legal work to incorporate and start building their client base, they're competition. I don't know how these things work in Chile, but in the US, a lot of media companies require you to sign a no-competition contract upon hiring for this very reason. You basically can't start a competing business or freelance in the same market for at least a few years after you leave their employ.

That's not at all confusing; how is it? It's pretty straight forward. For example, if you work at a Best Buy, you can't work at a Future Shop. Same goes for other competitors. If you work at one grocery store, you can't work at the other down the street. You can, however, get a waitressing job while keeping your office/secretarial job, just so long as the two aren't in the same field. Ditto for downtime.
