Other news: We're excited to have launched the first few of our presentations promoting self-employment as both a career and lifestyle option. Wendy Mason, AA2A's National Director, has been travelling the country presenting to Fine Art and Design students going through the 'nuts and bolts' of self-employment and busting the myth that only the most self-motivated graduates go self-employed.
We've had some excellent feedback...
- "Brilliant session. Great advice and has made me more confident to consider self-employment."
- "Very interesting and full of useful information that I didn't know was available about becoming self-employed. Makes everything clear!"
- "Thanks the tax information was the most helpful."
