Today I finally did it! I declared myself self-employed! It’s a huge step and frankly quite a scary one. I’ve been trying to do it for so long now that it’s strange now that it’s finally come along. I know what it means financially and legally, I also know what impact it will have on my tax and NI but I’m more worried about the impact on me! It’s definitely helping with my ‘work ethic’ already because I spent all evening in the attic sewing. I’ve been super stressed though today so I think it’s elevated my anxiety levels a little. I will try harder to find the fun tomorrow and then panic next week when all my tax info comes through the letterbox!
