Making the shift to self- employment

  • Sometimes it's a bit lonely trying to do things by yourself,
    especially if you want the independence and flexibility that comes 
    from starting your own business.
  • If you have found that work no longer satisfies you, and
    you have expert knowledge built up over many years of practice;
    shifting to self employment or self-funded professional work, maybe an option.
  • My promise to you is that I will work with you to:
    Identify the best use of your expertise
    to create a sustainable business,
    one that makes sense to you, acknowledges

    who you are, and
    what you believe.
  • Further, I will advise you on the practical systems,
    practices and tools to run your business profitably and
    work with you on the journey.

  • It’s not easy starting a business
    What will people think of you?
    What if you make a mistake?
    What if it doesn't work?
    Will people respect you?
    Where do you start?  
    How do you get customers?
    Who are they and how do you connect with them?
    What will you charge them?
    Can you make any money?
    How will you survive financially, socially and
    how will it affect your relationships?

The journey begins...

It's easy to get lost and distracted with
the less important aspects of starting out,
paying for services, such as logos, websites, business cards.

Most people starting out do the same.
However, it is the wrong focus to start with.
You'll end up spending a lot of hard earned money, and
in many cases waste it.

I can help you work on the practical steps to navigate
what’s really important in terms of
developing and managing your new business.

Or help you make the shift
from paid work to your own business.

If we both feel that we could work together after the exploration or clarity call, and we both feel that I am able to help you, then you may like to consider the following ongoing collaborative options:

Transitioning - while you are still working and want to further explore options to shift to self-employment in the near future.

Shifting Now - implementing our findings to develop your expertise as an entrepreneur, either about to retire, have resigned or have taken a redundancy package.


The collaboration component comes in the form of meetings,

Creating work for yourself that has personal meaning,

how to get customers, along with the business and the
marketing know-how and the support you need to get things done.
