Wow, so in the daytime they're normal Very Happy

I'm self employed which these days largely equals unemployed. When I make late night/early morning posts it's usually when I'm sitting awake wondering how I'm going to pay for everything Sad

I'm self-employed as a mobile bike mechanic!! just can't get enough of two wheels! thumbs


is that a good job to be in being mobile etc? I thought about it a while ago but you've got to guarantee the work which put me off.

I sort of do it as a half job/half hobby - I found that initially it was a bit slow, put lots of business cards in the local training centre and other bike related places, but as people used and were happy with my services, they put the word out with their friends etc and now I find myself with plenty to do.
I wouldn't say it's always easy but I do it for the love of it and when I lose the "love" I'll give it up!!
Admittedly I'm lucky in that I didn't have to put out much initial outlay and I wasn't totally dependant on having a good workload from day one so I've had an easy ride of it (excuse the pun! Laughing )

sounds good. I'm an ex mechanic and I've always done all the work on my own bikes so had the knowledge. it was just the cost and getting the work I was worried about. Still something to think about in the future. I do want my own business at some point in my life. thumbs

I thought that I'd post this as I've noticed there appear to be lots of questions related and might be something which I can help with.

I'm a qualified Insurance Underwriter and I would be pleased to answer any questions or if I don't know the answer, I'd be pleased to find out or research the details for you.

I'm happy to comment on any general insurance although please note that I'm not qualified to give advice on life insurance or pensions. I would strongly recommended that you discuss those queries with a suitable financial advisor only.

Anything else, I'm here to help.
