  2. The permanency of the worker’s relationship with the hiring business;
  3. The amount of the worker’s investment in the facilities, equipment or helpers;
  4. The amount of skill, initiative, judgment, or foresight required for the worker’s services;
  5. The worker’s opportunities for profit or loss; and
