Thirty Three.

Moving your business (and family) to a new place.

This week Frankie Tortora and Steve Folland have a chat in response to a question from Detective Sidney Watson AKA Anonymous. They say:

“So the time has come for us to seriously consider leaving the city we have lived in for almost 15yrs. Both me and my other half are freelancers and we have two children under 3… and too cats that hate us (due to making them share a flat with said toddler and baby).

After our second baby was born, serious discussion of where we can now afford to rent — maybe even buy — have led us to potentially returning to a home nearer family in the countryside

After establishing strong freelance networks in the city, and having a small children’s entertainment business which is based here, how do you start again? Some of our work can be done remotely but when you are freelance, it’s not just finding a new home/nursery it’s also new clients/networks and that’s scaring us!

Hoping your expert knowledge can help us find a path to our new countryside freelance lives…”
