This is not easy.
Changing career is never easy, but the amount of challenges ahead of me sometimes feels overwhelming.
I have made the decision to become a writer and I’m sticking to it, but getting things off the ground is tough.
I have a “to do” list and it starts like this:
- Write T&C’s
- Research IPR and copy-write statement
- Finish business plan
- Register with HMRC
- Set-up accounts (inc hourly time apportionments for general costs, also see allowable expenses)
- Set up business account
- Look into ways to pay
- Book HMRC workshop
- Work schedule – available productive hours vs business plan
Execution seems to be missing along with a load of other important things such as research, networking and knuckling down.
However, I can’t be too hard on myself; after all I have started this blog!
Business acumen aside, I need to prove I can write. I need to share my work, I need to get out there and find where I fit.
