An Introduction of Sorts

Hi there. This is my first official blog for my new business venture, The Write Stuff Kapiti.

I’m a technical writing and social media management service and I’m completely new to the world of self employment. It’s different, it’s scary, but it’s so exciting! 

I decided that if I am going to be working for the next 30 odd years of my life, why not do something that I enjoy, rather than do something just to receive a wage?  My motto is that it is better to try than to never try at all. I don’t want to wake up one day and say ‘what if?’

So, just a little bit about me: as you have probably noticed, I love to write. I love writing so much that I decided to get a diploma in it. I’m also big on communication, and I am currently halfway through a diploma in communication studies. I do this from home and so far I’ve enjoyed all of my course work :). 

I’m a single mum with a daughter who’s verging on her teenage years (she’s 13 in six months!) I love photography,  walks on the beach, weekly zumba classes and, of course, blogging and social media. 

I’m going to fill this blog with my thoughts, links to music that I’m currently listening to that inspires me, and photography. 

Although I am busy, I’m never too busy to blog, so if you want to leave a comment, whether it’s good or bad (preferably good!) I’ll most likely reply back.

Finally,  welcome to my official blog! I hope you enjoy reading my posts and feel inspired to do whatever it is you want to do in this life!

Like A Boss…

When you’re self-employed, you are the boss.  You hustle for the clients and you do the work for the good of your business and to build yourself a good reputation.

Business Quote For Today 

In July 2018, I will be opening the doors for my business, The Write Stuff Kapiti. 

I will be offering web design, IT Technical Writing and Social Media Management. 

I won’t lie, I’m both excited and nervous about becoming self-employed. There’s taxes, student loans and other expenses to pay, things that my former employers used to do all for me. There’s also the marketing, advertising and cold-calling to local businesses to garner interest. 

It’s a risk to go out on my own. It’s a risk because I’ve never been in business before. As scary as it is, it’s also something I feel like I need to do. After years of having terrible employers, waking up to their schedules and traveling, I can’t wait to wave goodbye to it all. I also can’t wait to no longer apply and attend job interviews or worst, feel rejection.

As I have one year to graduate from my Diploma and to gather steam on my business, I wait in anticipation on what lies ahead of me. 

I read that half of all businesses fail within the first year. I’m hoping that I beat the statistics and be the owner of a successful business for the rest of my working years. I hope that this business is it.

Starting Off Slowly

Slow and steady wins the race, or so the saying goes. 

The decision to delay the official opening of The Write Stuff Kapiti until July 2018 has been a tough decision, but one I had to make. To finish my Diploma in Communication & Web Design studies has to take priority and to open the business next year after I graduate gives me more time and something to look forward to and work towards.

However, just because the door hasn’t officially opened just yet, there is still a lot of marketing, advertising and financing to be done. The decision to focus the business more on web design was also a contributing factor in the opening delay.
