Starting a business

If you read my profile you will note that I am about to embark on a new venture in January. I am planning to go freelance as a writer and editor. I have done this before but it was a veeerrry long time ago. There is a certain chicken and egg situation here. To get freelance work you need to have a business bank account, insurances, business stationery and much more but, you need the freelance work to pay for all the set-up costs. That is unless you have a secret stash of spare cash hiding somewhere. Anyway, step one was successfully completed today. I have set up a business account with those nice people at Santander. It was much easier than the last time I tried to do this. Next stop is business stationery, and then the insurance. Wish me luck!
