I do have a number of contacts over there which could help.

    I'm a long way from that point yet though, as I don't have a website for the services I want to offer plus there is a good market for them in the UK anyway. I also don't want to be contracting long term, I just see this as a way to earn money whilst I setup my own business and find direct clients. I reckon I need a year to build up enough end clients that I can then drop out the contracting aspect all together, like most everyone else I need to work and London isn't cheap and so on. Hopefully I can reduce down to 4 then 3 days a week in the summer using that time for my own business development.

    There comes a point when a 'naive question' just becomes 'I will only listen to and, accept the answer I want to hear.'

    I think this thread reached that point a few days ago.

    Well I am here to learn and have to accept the advice of people who are specialists in this area.. Of course I don't like what I am hearing and I are hoping its not the way it is but it is what it is.... and I am half regretting even returning home.. but I had no choice with that either.....
