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!!
In reply to girlymonkey: Thanks for your reply. I totally agree with you, I know money isn't everything. I would love a job that I enjoy and so long as I can pay the bills I'm not bothered about much else. I live pretty cheaply as it is. Happy to live in budget accomodation, caravans, whatever
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?
