Late November I was made redundant from my 15-year job at Bupa Australia. Unfortunately Bupa has had to go through a range of cost-cutting measures including a number of similar redundancies.
Anywho – for me at least this was a great opportunity to put my ‘Plan-B‘ into action and switch from my 3-year side-gig to full blown self-employment.
One of the advantages of having this long period of chronic pain (30 years OMG) was seeing the writing on the wall. About 5 years ago when Olly was born I was in a very bad way with poor medication choices, on top of very high pain and depression + anxiety. I came extremely close to having to stop work and after that shitstorm died down I put my thinking cap on & decided to research what I might be able to do if self-employment was the only option. I cover this history in more detail on these blog posts
Help! I need somebody….
