Do you own and run a small business? I do and I have been since 2005. Over the years, the decision to self-manage all or most parts of my small business, has meant just that. At times, I’ve been responsible for the admin, accounts, tax, marketing, and my website. I’m
Let me set the scene. Since 2005, I’ve been working for myself. A majority of the time, I am out and about with my clients, either business performance coaching in their premises, or in a hotel foyer, or outdoors in the fresh air. When I’m not coaching, I focus on
