Grown-up Stuff

A back-up plan is taking shape

So the whole looking for work thing is going slow, and I happen to be a tad bit frustrated with the whole thing as I need to work! It’s not so much about the money than it is about being active, being social, and have something concrete to spend your days doing. I have dreams about working! The mornings I wake up from those dreams, I wake up happy!

So, if I can’t find someone smart enough to hire me I figured I just have to hire myself, piece of cake.

This morning is being spent (on the couch) making a financial and business plan, so I know what services to offer and how much I need to make in order to pay my bills at the end of the month. It’s going well, it’s strange how excited you can get over opening up an excel sheet, inputting numbers and calculations just to see how the numbers work out.

The main purpose of this not yet named company will be to help small business, probably mainly sole traders, with their bookkeeping and all the paperwork surrounding the lovely financial side of a business. I love doing that sort of thing, most people who start-up a small business wish it to hell, so me being able to save them is a win-win situation.

When you have your own company, you can do pretty much what you want in it, so I don’t only have to do the financial things, I figured that if I use that as my money-making scheme to pay my bills, then maybe I can squeeze in some catering on the side.

All I have to do now is find myself some customers…and keep applying for jobs!
