    Hi all,

    My name is Mark and have just begun my life as a soloist (about 2 months ago) after several years of operating a small side business as a building designer / architectural draftsman.

    I have to say, the flying solo book was instrumental in keeping my motivation and confidence levels up where they should be. I’ve read it twice and now my partner is reading it with the plan to get her own solo business going. I recommend it to pretty much everyone. So thanks for the great read!

    Nice to meet you all,

    Mark

    Hi Mark and welcome

    Flying Solo is great and I regularly recommend the site to business owners. Such a vast amount of information all in the one place.

    You are a glutton for punishment with two soloists in the one house – I know as I am in the same position!

    Thanks for the welcome Kelly :)

    It can definitely be distracting! My partner works 3 days a week at the moment which means Mondays and Fridays are my “slower” days. Usually just means I’ve made time to go out for coffee with her so I’m quite Ok with it :)

    Hi Mark :)

    I’m from Wollongong too! Maybe we should start some Wollongong meetups?

    Good luck in your new venture!

    Hi Polly and Mark,

    A Wollongong meetup is a great idea :)

    If you’re keen to kick one off, feel free to head to our dedicated page on meetup.com, start a new meetup community and nominate a time and place. We’ll do our bit by giving it a plug on social media, in our Friday newsletter and the various meetup widgets you see around the site.

    Have fun :)
    Jayne
