The Why i started for me was quite simple my corporate job was literally killing me. If you want the story I’m happy to share lol
The Why i still get out of bed and do what I do I suppose there are a number of things..
1) Financial independence for me paying off the mortgage etc (just not having to worry about money would be nice)
2) After so long there’s no way I could go back to the corporate world (not being able to work in my PJ’s till lunchtime is a dealbreaker)
3) I would like to get my mum into a nice retirement flat closer to me so I can look after her
I’ve made some very poor ‘paycheck’ or desperation decisions over the years (an ecommerce website for £400 for example) red flags all over the place but i desperately needed some money.. he’s still a client on a monthly maintenance retainer.. though i never hear from him.. he might have died *shrugs*
I’ve changed the way I work now so there will be none of that, plus I know more now than I did all those years ago when he got a bargain website, people have to pay me for what I know not what I do going forward *puts foot down*
