When I was working full-time for a company in London, in a proper office with a 45 minute commute at both ends, I dreamed of working from home occasionally. When I worked part-time, partially from home and partially from the office (a 2 hour commute away!) I dreamed of working from home all the time. And now I work for myself, running my own business and working entirely from home… yes, I naturally would love to work part of the time with other people in the real world, where the people I speak to are actually in front of me, not on the radio, or simply imaginary. So be careful of what you long for because working from home (in my case!) means…
Having said all that, I wouldn’t go back to working for a company - I like to think that it’s because I love working for myself so much, but in reality I doubt anyone would have me!
|You are so right on all of your points! I might just print it out and hang it in my workspace so I know I am not alone! Great blog! 😉|
After almost 20 years as a designer in children's publishing a short silversmithing course in 2006 prompted a change of direction.
The following year I enrolled on a part-time jewellery course, and found a local studio where I could make and sell my work.
In 2009, together with five other crafts people we found a shop space to rent on our busy local high street, the gloucester road, called Fig. We are open tuesday - saturday, 9.30am - 5pm (except August).
