Today we’re hearing from Carole Moreton, Team Leader and business owner for National Careers Week.
She talks to Fletcher about how her hobby turned into a home-based business, and why having a vision- along with technical and soft skills, are key to succeeding in self-employment.
Just like Carole, your own business could be a side job for some extra income, or it could be a full-time profession.
You also have the flexibility to choose your own working hours, complete creative freedom and the ability to work wherever you want.
Self-employment is not for everyone though, you have to consider all the risks and costs associated with it- and decide whether it is something you can commit to!
