My big fat portfolio career part two
November 12, 2010 2 Comments
I’ve just spent the last two days on a course run by FPM called How To Be a Consultant and it did what it said on the tin. On day one we found out about what being a consultant means in terms of a career choice, what sort of work is out there and what our individual USP might be. I think I know my USP (no sniggering at the back) but it’s another skill putting that down on paper. On day two we did work around being self-employed, tax, VAT and finances. All tricky stuff but we were an attentive audience becuase we’d never had to fill in a tax return.
Unlike many courses I go on that are a three line whip this really did answer my questions and more importantly, posed further questions that I need to answer for myself. Best of all there were some really interesting people there and it was a good opportunity for networking.
So I think a new self-employed career might just work.
But I won’t delete the Traffic order Maker application form yet.
Just in case.
