Ever feel like you’re ‘going it alone’ in your trade or contractor business?

Sometimes it can be tough as a sole trader or small to medium enterprise (SME). Not only are you on the ground doing the ‘work’, you also have to take care of your marketing, sales, finance, planning and still keep a smile on your face PLUS have some sort of personal or family life.


Despite how you might feel sometimes, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, Flying Solo is a community of solo and micro-preneurs that share very similar issues every day. 90,000 of them in fact!
