Reckoning It is the time for life, for love and for freedom hearing you call my name across the still of the lake watching the eagle fly or the head of the snake devoured Breaker My arms are holding onto the ledge my eyes are deflecting the pain and the beast praying to God, 'how can this be?' my lonely existential anguish breaker of the ravishing illusions Isolation Cannot think, cannot heal all I want, is to feel love that you should have given I would not ask for more instead isolated wondering what more can be taken Reflection In the mirrors you are no longer a smiling face no longer content to live in pain acceptance of the truth one escape or way out ... and where were all you living beings ... and the sunlight on my darkest nights oh, 'just too busy, living for eternity' What Happened Next I am the wall that divides heaven and earth the soul who's million year adventure was built, verse by verse alone and content, seeing evil beings, repent I smile again, you see me strong so many people, have now long gone what happened next I was the best, you were the rest undying and no longer simplifying my strength is a rock the silent ticking, of the universal clock.
What are the benefits of being self employed?
This was originally going to be titled the ‘benefits of working from home’ but I realise now I can incorporate that into this post anyway. You may also be interested in my post ‘how to dream big.’ You can also check out my short post on me now studying/working from home.
Alas, today I’m going to go over some excellent reasons why being self employed. If you live in England you can check out this Gov article on being a sole trader – https://www.gov.uk/working-for-yourself.
There is a lot of independence to be gained, and a lot of fun also. You might be earning £23,000 a year working in a desk job sorting a lot of papers. Compare that with having the freedom to work your own hours, be your own boss, and earn whatever you want. Self employment, or being a sole trader, is a sure fire way to get an unlimited income potential. You earn an amount of money both proportionate, directly, to how much you work and what the demand for your services is.
- Home Working and Having a Lot of Fun – If you already work from home, or study from home, as I am doing myself at the present moment, although I have a week off starting from tomorrow… a week of work still. So, you get to just do your work in the hours that suit you, whether that be 9 – 5 or 12 – 2pm, you have complete freedom when it comes to home working. You might be able to set up a home based internet business, or run a small business from home where you also store actual inventory – in other words you keep stock in your property. Of course, don’t forget to register with the appropriate tax people, self employment still means paying income tax. I suspect a lot of people are making more than £1000 a year from side hustles, which means they will have to pay tax.
- Unlimited Income Potential – There is no limit on how much you can earn from self employment. In fact, there is more income potential as you aren’t in a job where you work fixed hours for someone else, ending up getting nowhere. Self employment en mass is the future, a future where people earn the amount they want and deserve. You see it everyday or hear about people, just leaving well paid jobs to start their own business, work from home, or go solo consulting and then popping up years later as millionaires. Don’t go thinking it’s based on demand though, income cannot be guaranteed through demand unless you have a niche and well valued and sought after skill or service. usually income is dependent on the amount of work you do. This is in turn related to the demand from customers.
- Do Your Own Thing – You only have to pay your taxes and national insurance to appropriate levels. It’s real freedom. In terms of what to do for self employment, as already mentioned, you can start a home based business, or a small business, you can sell goods from your home. This can include goods and products you make yourself, like candles, soaps, paintings, pottery, furniture, food, gift cards, anything! If you have skills that are sought after, utilise them for goodness sake. If I pass my course, I’ll be loaning myself out at £50 an hour for legal advice to start with on a freelance basis. To be honest, I can do that now because people with a degree, or relevant qualifications are automatically more likely to have those skills and knowledge that people want. Used to work in an estate agents and want to do this yourself.
The benefits of anything are endless, self employment vs working for a company are truly superior. I never understood why anyone would work for a company on the basis that they will be promoted, earn more and after 50 years become a director or something. Think about it, you can become a director from day one with self employment. The reason I was attracted to becoming a barrister was because they are self employed and independent. Independence is an important word here, remember, you have to deal with it all yourself, unless you pay an accountant or rent an office or hire someone etc.
I hope light shines on you eternally. Thanks for reading.
I miss you, I am here still, the world spins, to the dreams of the dead. A broken sound, your black eyes, there is no road, we are still here.
I am tempted to start a page dedicated to my royal pythons. If I start the page it would be a photo journey of the snakes as they grow and of my current breeding project. Loving the snakes, they are very happy and healthy, exception would be my bumblebee ball python who has some retained eye caps at the moment.
Good person conquering evil,
Standing up for what is right,
Trying hard to define that which is natural,
Arguing against the currents,
Fighting everyday to come home and slap yourself on the back,
Stop this lame excuse,
A heart of metal and a mind of wires,
You were made for life not for fighting.
Pity the greedy and sympathise with the selfish,
Pray for the weak minded and will strength into the hearts of every man, woman and child,
Don’t fall into a sea of doubt and hate,
Embrace the kindness in your hearts,
A light embedded into your souls from before birth,
Stop chasing the dragon and open your eyes,
Take a long hard look inside,
You’re not a machine you’re a human being.
God creators and dream destroyers,
Fatherless nay-sayers and worthless cowards,
Long lost envious and jealous greedy humans,
Masks of the faces of leaders and friends,
Nothing but burnable rubber, pathetic lies behind a cheap disguise, Caress your soul and plant the seeds, watch them grow for gods sake!
Flowing endless rivers,
waiting on the embankment for your journey,
empty pockets and lost soul,
don’t be afraid of letting go,
step into the waters,
feel the waves move you,
hear the chants endow you,
never give up.
Compound 678: Idiocy
Lock down and shut up,
open your mouths,
we’re here to spray you,
no illusion, just atrocity,
compound 678, idiocy,
it’s grown since the son,
it’ll never be undone,
eat the dirt,
feel no emotions,
that’s how they like it,
but it’s gone too far,
the compound doesn’t care who we are,
striking people day after day,
can’t think for themselves,
don’t want to be empathetic to someone else,
holes become mountains,
nature becomes a burden.
