It’s that time again! Liz Dexter of Libroediting caught up with me recently to see what I’ve been up to in the last 12 months:
Last year, I talked about how I’d been considering quitting my business altogether and what made me decide to keep going. This year, we look at what’s happened as a result of that decision and what I’m planning next.
More about Liz and Libroediting:
Liz is a small business owner and author who is passionate about supporting other small businesses and encouraging people to realise that you don’t have to jump into self-employment with your eyes closed; she started the Small Business Chat series as part of her business and language blog in June 2011 and has created a resource full of different people’s experiences of self-employment and running a business. Through the series, Liz looks into why and how freelancers and other small business owners start – and continue to run – their own businesses. Every year, she invites all her interviewees back to talk about what’s changed, what’s stayed the same and what their latest plans are.
More information on Liz’s books, including ‘How I Survived my First Year of Full-Time Self Employment: Going it Alone at 40’, ‘Running a Successful Business after the Start-up Phase or, Who are you Calling Mature?’ and her ‘Quick Guide to Networking, Social Media and Social Capital’ can be found here.
I first met Liz via Birmingham’s lively social media scene; in a city with over one million people, the myriad real-life connections – first formed online – help make Birmingham feel like a close knit community.
