Dave has written me a new letter and he has a request. His letter is below. You can find out more about Dave and the background to his letter on his page. So the next few posts here are going to be for those contemplating self employment.
Changes in life like redundancy affect us all deeply. They change us and they change our relationships particularly with out partners.. Acknowledge the change for both of you and that both of you are suffering loss. It is not about whose loss is greater. If you can, start to work for and not against each other! You can be a team again, I’m sure!
Being made redundant is stressful for the individual concerned and those around them. Life changes for the partner or spouse too and this can take a toll. It helps if you can talk about this together.
