Welcome to a site and blog that is dedicated to people who work differently from the mass.

When you work alone, for any reason, it presents challenges that others often don’t know exist. Solo working may be a core part of your job as a freelancer or independent contractor. It can be a symptom of the stage of your business: for entrepreneurs just starting out it may be a while before you are can grow your team – or you may not want to. It can even be involuntary, thanks to the determination to take control that sometimes follows redundancy.

Freelancers, solopreneurs and ‘mumpreneurs’ are growing in number exponentially as more and more people see the potential of turning an idea or a passion into a business. Meanwhile, more and more school and college graduates are emerging with entrepreneurial ambition, rather than nine-to-five serfdom, on their mind.

The simple fact of working without the frameworks many employed workers take for granted can create challenges, ranging from personal effectiveness and happiness to creativity and organisation.  That’s where we come in.
