Firstly thankyou for having me here. I have some questions & seek advice I also look forward to sharing my experiences, you see I have been caring for me son for the last 17 years (9 of them on my own) Now he is turning 18 in a few months & all though he needs around the clock care I want him to try and gain abit more independence so it got me thinking, having your dad around ALL the time might hinder the confidence to become more self-reliant. So I have decided to hire a friend or 2 to take over the caring duty (I’ll still be in the picture, but I’m hoping me not being there 24/7 might help my cause)
Now I’m looking to do everything by the books, register my company on companies house, incorporate a payroll system. I’m in the final stages of arranging a business insurance package & have already got my bookkeepers sorted & to ensure everything is above board.
However finances do run tight even at the best of times, so I wanted your feedback on this, would it be more or less cost efficient to hire private carers? Does anyone have advice on how to coax your family/friends into becoming more independent? Are there any good books on building a small business and also any material on how to build up the mind positively?
I appreciate the help & look forward to hearing your thoughts.
