It's been a few weeks since my last blog, so I thought I'd just go with an update of what's been happening in that crazy crazy time!
Today I thought I’d write a little about TidyMedia’s "other" interest - start-ups and small/local business.
At the time of writing, it’s been six months since I was made redundant and decided to set out on my own. In that time, I’ve tried to do the best job I can by getting as much help and support as possible. And trust me, there’s lots out there. Some, admittedly, is only available to me because I was made redundant, but there’s a lot that’s available to every budding entrepreneur with a viable business idea.
Today’s post will have a predominantly Welsh slant, as I’m writing from my own personal experience, and that’s where I’m based. I’d like to hope that wherever you are, there will be similar support available.
Ever drift from an old friend? Nobody did anything wrong, you’re still friends, you just haven’t heard from each other in a while. Maybe you didn’t see each other for a few days that turned into a few weeks, and then a bit longer.
Ever noticed that sometimes the same thing happens in your business? A once-regular customer just disappears. They had a new car to pay for, or a holiday disrupted their regular routine, and through no fault of your own you just kind of slipped their mind.
As well as being a social media & digital marketer, I’m also, mostly, a home-worker. In the (nearly) six months since I was made redundant and started up TidyMedia, I’ve learned a few home truths about working from home. See what I did there?
I can’t claim to be the utmost authority on the topic, but if you’ll allow me the small indulgence, I’d like to share a few top tips from my own experience that work to boost my producitivity, so probably will for you, too!
