This is part 2 of my blog recording the count down to setting up my own business. Part 1 can be found here.
The subject for this weeks business start-up course was business accounts, or maths as the lecturer Melissa Middleton kept informing us. I happen to like maths and am generally quite good at it, and was rather upset that I got the final National Insurance calculation wrong. I suppose I did have the excuse that it was late in the evening and I was tired and hungry. This is a good warning that doing such things as cash flow forecasts and profit and loss calculations should not be done when too tired as it is so easy to make mistakes
Earlier on in the day I had had a review of our Business Plan – where currently at and what needs more thinking, especially the figures. The joke is that it is like looking in a crystal ball that is totally opaque, rather than a cloud in a reflection.
Still life moves on even if it is only at snails pace – role on next week more figures. Hopefully by then I will have this new version of the Business Plan almost finished – all ready for my visit to the bank. No doubt there will be more on that in further posts.
