Surviving the Storm

I’ve been a self-employed consultant for 18 years. Phil has been working for consultancies large and small for the same period and so far we’ve been able to feed the kids, pay the mortgage, live comfortably and have fun.

We’ve been through the early 90’s downturn, survived the tech-stock bubble, the post 9-11 crash and other various stumbles and trips. We’ve walked away with a set of generally happy clients, some great experiences, a couple of bruised friendships but many, many more positives than negatives. Will we be able to do that in the 2009-2011 period. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. In this blog we’d like to share our experiences with you and maybe get some feedback too. Stronger together.
