Welcome to Roundpeg and thank you for taking the time to read my very first blog, very daunting especially when I’ve decided to blog about my decision to start a business in potentially worrying times and at the age of 54!
I have always worked, luckily never being without a job, and until August 2019 had worked for the same company for 15 years, after unluckily finding myself without a job and looking at all the available portals, I thought well this is it, my time is now, when else will I have the opportunity to work for myself? That step is relatively easy, but other decisions are difficult, how do I support myself? What shall I do? How will I fund it? The list is endless…..
One extremely hard decision was what to call the company? I knew I wanted to corner a niche part in the market, that of difficult buildings, bespoke, tailor-made, custom-made…therefore I thought I wanted to try to put a round peg into a square hole (garden), eureka – that was going to be the company name….Next I had to find my business partner… I needed an expert in making these buildings and fitting them!!
