In December 2017 Virtual Wombat completed its metamorphosis into a totally awesome Webcomic.

It now lives at where all future updates will be found. I'm leaving the rest of this content here for anyone who wants to read it but will now permanently redirect to the new website.

Thanks to everyone who supported my initial blogging journey, it gave me the education I needed to get my comic launched.


Help to Start Your Own Business

However hard you work on developing your career and gaining the skills to help you climb up the promotion ladder at work, you are still using your effort for someone else’s benefit. This is why so many people like the idea of starting their own business. Once you decide which industry you want to develop your business in, you’re faced with two choices.

Getting The Help You Need To Start Your Own Business

Getting The Help You Need To Start Your Own Business

You can leave your job and devote yourself entirely to your new venture. This is a big financial risk and you need a fair amount of initial capital to make this work. New businesses can go for a whole 12 months (or even longer) without making any money at all.

The other option is to launch your business in your spare time. This is a lifestyle choice and it will swallow up a lot of your spare time. The hours over the weekend and in the evening that you used to spend socialising or pursuing a hobby will now be spent in your business.

There are many business functions that you can do yourself but there are other are others that you will need some help with. These are specialist skill areas that you require a professional contractor to help you with. It is a good idea to have some money put to one side so that you can afford their help to get your business off the ground.

Technical skills

Unless you are an IT genius you will probably need some help with the technology side of your enterprise. One of the most valuable services you will need is mobile computer repair. This service will provide you with fast, high quality, cost effective out-of-warranty repairs for your mobile computers and barcode scanners. Very few businesses can survive without these devices and when they go wrong it brings your business to a standstill. The service will not break the bank when cash flow is limited. The free of charge assessment service and flexible pricing options ensure that costs are manageable for a new enterprise.

Website and SEO skills

You will inevitably need to set up an online presence for your business. Your customers will expect to find you and read all about the service or product that you require online. Very few new business owners have the necessary skills to set up a killer website so you need to buy in a web design service.

Once your website is up and running and you need to ensure that your potential customers can find you so you will need some advice on search engine optimisation (SEO). There are specialist advisers who can help you reach the top spots in the Google rankings and get your site seen.

Accounting and financial services

This is not the most exciting aspect of running a business but is one that you cannot ignore. You have to get it right or there could be big financial penalties handed out by HMRC. Get a qualified accountant to advise you right from the start to stay on the right side of the law.
