Apologies to people who have missed me. I realised it's been a few months since I last blogged and it seems a longer! Lots has gone on in the world of Neophyte since my last post and an update is defintely due.
As intended I left my job at the end of May after what seemed like an eternity of working my notice (3 months is too long......). I has a week away at Center Parcs and started the next Monday in our practice. I managed to get a few bits of client work done early in the week and made a start on our systems and marketing. However out of the blue in early June I was offered a consulting job at a very lucrative day rate. I couldn't turn it down, especially as my hoped for redundancy lump sum never materialised. I started on a three month contract and have been there ever since. My wife has continued in the practice full time and it has continued to grow and prosper.
I've managed to drop down the contract to remote support and limited days, so I'm now back in the accountancy practice business. With a capital cushion behind me, first hand experience of being a contractor and the lifeline of additional consultancy work available, I feel I'm in a much better position to build the practice up going forward.
Watch out 2018 & the AccountingWeb community, Neophyte is coming for you hard!!!!!!
