Welcome! Stuff me – I’m blogging and it sure feels weird! I am only blogging because I want a regular chat with all the Go It Aloners who are bravely doing their own thing (or thinking about it), and who have so kindly bought my books, listened to my rantings, and have communicated with me.
I regularly visit a forbidding cave which is under a local public house of dubious reputation, where dwells a nest of scary techno-trolls. They lurk there because their ever-increasing demand for alcohol has now become intravenous. On payment of coin they will let you enter and leave relatively unmolested. The reason for risking such horrors is that they understand computers, IT, e.commerce, and the mighty mystic power they call the Net. We live in Gloucestershire in the UK where we are a little behind the times. Emails are delivered by a smocked yokel with a note held in a forked stick. He will throw rocks at your window and yell, “Emails for you, Mr Burch!” If, when you look out, he is pushing a barrow, one can guess that he has attachments, but my IT trolls tell me that the only way to get in touch with you all is to blog. Apparently the Net is the place for every business to be, so here we are – the first ever Go It Alone blog entry.
By virtue of my rackety life and dodgy way of thinking, these entries by definition will be a bit erratic, but I will try and produce regular and provocative nuggets on how to make it happen for you, in a self-employed sort of way.
