So, other than being made redundant and attempting to setup my own business, my second son coming into the world and suffering with the lack of sleep associated with that, what ahve I been upto?
Well, as the heading says, Progress is slow. As I am currently still employed then I can't earn money during my normal core hours. This I assume would include developing websites that are capable of earnig me money. So, progress on websites and associated income streams has been limited to evenings and weekends, and to be fair with new baby time has been very limited.
So, what have I done?
Business Awareness Workshop
On the 6th November I attended another business awareness course provided by Penna Associates in central Manchester. It has to be said, the course was excellent and I would recommend that anybody considering setting up in business should attend.
After the business awareness workshop I had a 1 hour 1 to 1 with one of the Penna trainers during which time we reviewed my CV. A couple of changes to be made but I feel much happier with both style and content.
The practicalities of having to earn money to support the family along with haveing two children under 2 give several problems. Firstly I need money and secondly I don't get much work done when oliver is not in nursery, effectively giving me a 3 day working week! At this time the business has not been setup and as such is not capable of generating money so any idea of hiring an office can be forgotten. With that in mind, the only serious option is to look for another job and whilst I am looking I will push hard on the business front.
