As a business owner, you will get asked how business is going quite often by friends, family and even other parents at the school gate. The truth of the matter is, it is very unlikely that you would answer this question truthfully if business was not so good. If you are stuck in a rut, it is difficult to ask anyone to help – all you want is for an email or phone call about some work.
If you've recently taken the step into the world of self employment and fell for the lure of working hours that suit you, being your own boss and ultimately being in control of your own earnings, then congratulations, you've taken your first step into an entirely new way of working.
Being your own boss....being self employed.....what does it even mean? Is it the preserve of the rich or clever....or just the plain crazy? Well if you are thinking the latter then you're somewhere near to the life of a SUCCESSFUL business owner. If you like the thrill of the ride, and by that I mean you like being busy from 6am to 9pm where the phone never stops ringing and the job never really ends then being self employed might be just what you are looking for.
