Welcome to guest blogger, Caroline Law, who explains how she took the plunge and set up her own online video editing service.
I love coming up with ideas. They can sometimes be a bit ridiculous, like having an elderberry farm or becoming a lumberjack for example. This one however started small. I just wanted to spend more time with my daughter and continue in the job I already love. So I decided about a year ago to set up my own online video editing service that included myself as an editor and some of the great editors I’ve been lucky to get to know then lucky enough to get on the books.
Working as a television editor in Soho, the hours are long and you are expected to give everything up for the 6-8 week contract that you’re on. Being a mum is amazing, but coming home to my already fast asleep daughter every night is heart breaking. I want the best of both worlds. I want to be able to do the job I love from home and I’m going to make every effort to get it. I’ve almost managed to take one of my ideas to fruition, it’s not been easy but it has already been rewarding.
