Thoughts on self-employment from Izzy Hatfield of New Statesmen…

“Such has been made of the rise of the UK self-employed, and indeed it looks like they’re here to stay. Over one in seven of the workforce is self-employed; from rent-a-chair hairdressers to the owners of tech start-ups, the self-employed are everywhere. This level of self-employment puts us above the European average, an unusual position for a western European economy.”

“I remind clients and myself, to think of “balance” as being fluid, not stationery. It is less about having each individual day, and more about the bigger picture of life. Some weeks it is easier to carve out more “me” time… other weeks are more demanding at work. It becomes a bit like “triage.” The most urgent situations are certainly the priority. However, it is critical to ensure that we prioritise ourselves, and our marriage/partnership, as much as we prioritise our children and work.”

Entrepreneur and President of Reputation Management, Bill Fish says…

“Being your own boss is incredible in terms of making time for events for your kids. Whether it is a little league game that starts at 3pm or being parent reader at the school, I’m able to simply block off that time and spend those important moments with my family. It may mean that I’m sitting in front of the computer after they are in bed for the night, but having the freedom to make those decisions on my own has been a wonderful thing and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
