Has the terrible weather over the last few days impacted your business?

I can do a lot of my work online from home but it has stopped me getting into the office until today.

It might seem like a strange question but is there no type of insurance you can take out for a seasonal business? I once looked at illness cover for myself but it was going to cost a few hundred pounds a month and wasn’t worth it.

I don't think there is. I have Liability Insurance cover plus good cover for myself should I be injured etc, all Winter I have been doing handyman work for one of my customers that I do outside grounds maintenance for. They insisted on having the Liability Insurance for working on site. So I negotiated the cost for the insurance from them. its a Win-Win. I made some extra money over the winter when I normally would not have, and they got me scoring off all the odd jobs they needed done from the To-Do-List.

Yes the weather has a big impact on a lot of my outdoor work, we have a new hotel to photograph for a client they need good weather shots but have a pressing deadline, will it be the typical Scottish grey day, blowing a gale or a white out we have no idea but we need to deliver and that's going to be difficult unless we are blessed with the weather or client wants.

We have had a couple of pretty good days this week, blue skies, I hope you get the chance to get your photos. it is sickening when you have to depend on the weather, I lost around a months money last year because of the rain across the summer months.

All is well
I`d rather say that global news and politics influence my business more. Nowadays everything depends on oil, crypto and politics

Agree. I do believe that Blockchain is in the news a lot at the moment. The technology that brought us Bitcoin and Ethereum is being discussed everywhere, from the papers and economic forums through to street corners and casual blogs. People understand that blockchain is novel and disruptive, that it holds great potential. They might even understand a little of how it works. Read this article about private blockchain and how it works. Invest in your future!
