I have often considered starting some sort of home based business but have always doubted my capability to be organised enough to make it work.
I like working for a 'boss' because you can leave it up to someone else to do all the paper work and stressing.
I have know been put in a position where the thought of having a little more control over my income has become quite important.
Where to go from here though?
I have been working in the bridal industry going on eight years now and really love it.
I like sewing and creating beautiful things but my problem is where to start?
I'm not a pattern maker and don't enjoy that side at all so I suppose I could do Alterations sigh which I am not fond of at all.
I like the idea of home accessories like bespoke soft furnishings but how to get it out there?
I would also consider doing other evening wear but again I'm not really sure if there is a market for what I love to do?
Then there's the space to do the cutting out, sewing and of course to see clients for fittings.
I would have to move my daughter out of her room and potentially move in there ourselves to use the main bedroom which has a sun room attached to use as the workroom.
The possibilities are there but am I ready and will it work?
I think I'll be doing allot of soul searching over the next couple of weeks stay tuned...
