would normally visit my clients to assist with their
computer and tech issues at their premises, charging for my
time accordingly. This is how I earn a living. It is also an
enjoyable way for me to live; cycling to and from different
locations, meeting different people, shaking hands, and
enjoying the hospitality of tea, coffee, biscuits (even
cake!), and a bit of a chat along the way!
We are required
to be in lockdown or self-isolate and limit our travel but I will continue to
offer and provide my services as best as possible. However,
it is rarely as simple as telling you what you need to click
on! Not meeting you or your computer face-to-face often
makes getting to the bottom of a problem and resolving it
all the more challenging.
I am able to provide a simple solution over the phone, I
you email me or contact me through my website, I will do my
best to help you out or point you in the right direction for
necessary I can collect a problem system and return it to
you at your convenience, keeping a safe social distance as
resolving tech issues; it’s satisfying, if only a little
stressful at times! I think we all realise (especially now)
how much we rely on our devices.
problem that remains for me is how to charge for my services
and continue to earn a living during this time when I’m
unable to visit my clients as normal and for them to see or
appreciate how much time is involved.
government is assisting employed people who have been told
not to work, with up to 80% or their earnings and SSP, but
for the self-employed like myself, we’re expected to wait
more that two months and live off any savings we might
have (savings that will limit what assistance we do get,
if any, with the necessary Universal Credit system).
live by simple means; cycling to clients being an aspect of
this, but we all have bills to pay.
Here you can
help me help you and others alike stay connected at this
regarding your experiences with using my services.
Here is a handshake for you!
