Experience! I have more experience than when I first started over 10 years ago (2006).

  1. What problems do you face?

Getting Paid! It is a recurring problem with some clients.

At the start of a project the client and I agree on a deposit of 50 per cent and the remaining 50 after finishing but…Suffice it to say it’s a challenge collecting the balance with some clients.

Expansion, expansion, expansion; I really want to expand my business by, opening more workshops around the country.
