This blog is a little from experience and delighted to share it with you.

however in short summary throughout this time I have mainly been in a self employed position since leaving school.
Exciting - yes! Scary at times - yes! But only in this last year have a really come to appreciate the freedom that being your own boss gives you when our little boy Freddie came into the world.
Without doubt companies are getting better at flexible working and also the maternity and paternity leave is better than ever before. However there is something that I just couldn't prepare for with the arrival of Freddie, and that is how quickly he grows up! You just can't predict what he will do next!
I feel beyond blessed to have been able to manage my schedule to spend time with him and experienced first hand the milestones of first words, crawling, first steps, meeting his first ostrich, falling over in the sea for the first time and amusingly eating his first croissant in France! These are moments that will never come back around and every one is captured in my mind. It has also been amazing to be the 'family team' and being able to support Jo when she has needed it.
So as you plan your career journey, you might be daunted about being your own boss. But if you have a little look at our tube channel, or piccies below, you can see the freedom it can bring. It's not just a qualification, it's about being able to plan your time around those moments that matter the most.
