New Practice

Hi All

 

I've recently posted on here with some queries on setting up in practice and getting practising certificates etc.  I've now got everything fully set up and have signed up 4 clients, one from a networking event and one is a neigbour who referred on the other 2.  I've been reading a lot of the old posts on here about those who were in a similiar position and have followed some of the tips on getting new clients with little success i.e. networking, mailshots, cold calling, postcards, connected with a former colleague who has also set up on their own for some advice and I registered with Choose your Accountant. 

I knew that this was going to be a slow process but now here I am on a Saturday night fretting about where my next client is going to come from and worrying about paying the bills (got redundancy money to see me through but I still worry anyway).

Sorry for being a broken record but just looking for any tips and advice to see me through.

 

Thanks all.

 

Bernice
