Busy week; hired an accountant, registered (and became the director of) my own limited liability company, and generally got things rolling, websites, phone numbers, logo, that sort of stuff. Still a few bits of admin to tie up and, due to some political speedbumps, I can't publicly launch the company for another couple of weeks, but essentially I'm ready to start doing business and I've already got a couple of meetings set up with potential clients.
It's all been fairly easy so far. In fact the biggest pain in the arse has been trying to get our stupid fucking bullshit wifi to work in the spare room/global HQ. At the moment it still feels a bit like I'm playing at being a grownup because, despite setting up all the infrastructure, I haven't actually got any clients yet, but I suppose that will change once I sign a few up and have to work out how I'm going to fulfil all the empty promises I made to get their money.
Wife asked me if it feels lonely working on my own after spending so long in busy offices. Bless her sweet heart, she still doesn't understand that I loathe all other human beings and their spirit-crushingly banal small talk.
