Shame I haven't got the £10k :o(
I am very interested to know what sort of money can be earned and the career routes that people have taken into the outdoor industry though. Self-employed, schools, centres, etc?
Maybe UKC could do an article on it?
Money?!! Don't be silly!
Seriously, if you go freelance you can do well if you get enough clients, but it's not an industry to be in if money is your objective. I love it, I always say I have the best job in the world, but I'm always skint!!
I registered for my SPA just before I got made redundant. I was looking for a change. Putting a business plan together for £10k + other start-up costs isn't easy though.
I'm not new to being self-employed so know what that's all about, and would love to be self-employed again if I'm honest.
How did you start out? Did you work for someone else first, was it a complete career change, or something you worked towards at college etc?
