    HOT TOPIC Dealing with depression as an entrepreneur, figuring things out as I go

    I'm feeling good and putting positivity out into the world in hopes it'll be returned. If I see someone is sad, I'll try cheer them up. If a friend expresses that they feel alone, I'll just reach out and start a conversation. I'm trying to be grateful for what I have. At the same time, PayPal...

    HOT TOPIC Dealing with depression as an entrepreneur, figuring things out as I go

    I have no money, now Prime Minister has us on a lockdown so I can't even sell the house. I'm feeling suicidal, hopeless, and like I can't cope. Ever since I joined in November I've been focused on my plan and things getting better and it's just not happening. My debt is growing and I'm even...

    HOT TOPIC Dealing with depression as an entrepreneur, figuring things out as I go

    I can't stay here and work as my FL business plan requires the capital from this place! The alternative is staying here several years, at least, whilst it recovers again. I *HATE* it here, all of my capital is tied up here. It's horrible to be stuck with £0 income when I have all my money tied...

    HOT TOPIC Dealing with depression as an entrepreneur, figuring things out as I go

    Quick update after a tough month. Life is really trying me, I can't believe the timing. My online house views went down from 250 to 20-40 now the virus hit... Meanwhile I'm still getting my a$$ beat (and not in the good way), so that's fun. I am considering selling the house at auction but I'm...

    What are the WORST decisions you've made in your entrepreneurial journey?

    Buying and renovating a house. The stress made me suicidal and when I took an income hit I couldn't invest in business cuz all my capital was tied up in the house which made me more depressed. Now I'm selling just as a recession is starting so I could end up coming out after 3 years with LESS...

    UK business registration, when is the accounting date?

    Thank you! That clears it up. It has a DD/MM/YYYY format, but if I put x's they'll know what I mean? Great advice as ever, I appreciate it! Ltd company, I'm already registered as self-employed

    UK business registration, when is the accounting date?

    This isn't about self employment tax return. It's a new business registration, they want an accounting date. Do I put 5/4/2020 then?? And that's when I file accounts from now until the 5th April? It just seems weird to put the date a month away, but I'm really worried I'll do it wrong. I am...

    UK business registration, when is the accounting date?

    What do I put for the business accounting date? I can't find a good answer online! The business wasn't active during the 2018/19 tax year so would I put the date of the start of the 2020/21 tax date (6/4/2020) or the end of the 2020/21 tax date (5/4/2021)? I'm so confused! Thanks.

    Feeling depressed.

    I really, really, appreciate everyone's replies. I regretted posting this immediately but the responses were great anyway. The past week I've been getting intense bouts of depression, I think it's just the constant underlying stress I've been dealing with for over a year along with the fact my...

    If you had to eliminate ONE thing that currently brings you stress as an entrepreneur, what would that be?

    My house is owned outright so there's a lot of capital tied up in it and I hate it here so I'm listing it Monday. Fingers crossed it sells quick and buyers aren't bothered by the virus. I'm hoping to find a buyer before it's widespread in the UK and get through the conveyancing process as quick...

    If you had to eliminate ONE thing that currently brings you stress as an entrepreneur, what would that be?

    The likelihood of a recession within the next 6 months :rofl:

    NOTABLE! The Coming Recession (2019-2020?)

    I'm with ya Mac! My house goes on the market on Monday. All the estate agents in Jan/Feb told me they've never seen so many buyers on the market so I'm praying the virus doesn't put them off. It sucks conveyancing often takes 8-12 weeks or more in the UK, I'm more worried of a collapse mid-sale...

    The Etsy MEGA Thread... Best Practices, Use, Etc.

    It's a shame and they are losing out on business over old grudges! Like ok my feedback when I was 16 was 96% which wasn't good enough, but that was 8 years ago, I've moved address, I'm using a different bank card, let me give you business!! :rofl: I hate how even the best rated businesses have...

    RANT I don't want to live on this planet anymore

    No I feel you, people can be dumb, but at the same time Facebook *heavily* promotes it. I can have a post with engagement of 30-40% but because it's positive and not controversial they won't give it much reach

    RANT I don't want to live on this planet anymore

    That's absolutely true. Facebook promotes controversial and outrageous content above others

    The Etsy MEGA Thread... Best Practices, Use, Etc.

    Is there any way at all to create a second store? I've tried a couple of times after my first store, many years ago, got suspended. They always know it's me and soon suspend the account though. I like Etsy as a search engine, it's a good way to sell stuff organically

    HOT TOPIC The Worldwide Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Discussion Thread...

    I spent all of 2019 wanting to die and expecting to not make it to 2020. Now I just want to live. I want to live in a way I haven't wanted to for years. I'm so scared of this thing! I have control of my mental health and I want to be here for 2021 and beyond so bad.
