So March marked my one year anniversary of setting up Metis HR.
Looking back over the year has made me realise how incredible it’s been and what a long way I’ve come. In the last year I’ve got 24 clients, won a business award, been interviewed on two radio programmes, been in the newspaper, developed relationships with Pannone Solicitors and AXA insurance and moved into new premises.
I’ve done the usual ‘setting up a business’ type things - Companies House, banks, accountants, landlords, networking and even got to grips with this new-fangled social media stuff ..…….. and I’ve done your average personal things too; made new friends, drifted from old work colleagues, slipped a disc, got lost visiting clients, bought a sat nav, broken a sat nav, bought another sat nav (not because I got lost, I promise!).
Working for myself was never a long term career goal for me but I feel like I’ve embraced it fully. It’s been an exhilarating journey discovering all the lumps, bumps and warts of self-employment. I can’t wait to discover what year 2 has in store for me. I look forward to having you as a companion on the next phase of the Metis HR odyssey.
