“Hmm, so actually it works out that I’m paying myself less than minimum wage. I could make more working in Primark. Looking at the numbers, it looks about right though. I guess this happens a lot?”
Yes it does.
And no it shouldn’t.
What’s the point of taking the risk of working for yourself? What’s the point of going without holiday pay and sick pay and a pension and IT support and a team around you to (supposedly) handle the stuff you don’t like doing?
You probably did it because you knew you could do it better. You probably did it because that team’s way of doing things wasn’t the best.
And you probably did it because you wanted some extra freedom and flexibility in your life.
But, if you’re not paying yourself enough, you’re actually replacing flexible hours with ⏰long⏰ hours.
So you’re missing out on two fronts.
That’s why I created the PDF Formula.
