Tips for making friends when you work alone, and how to make an accident at work claim against another company
There are plenty of great reasons for choosing to work for yourself. For a start, you will be able to decide what you do and when you do it, as well as pretty much doing what you want when it comes to your work days, as long as you are able to get the work you need to do completed in time.
However, there are negatives with anything, and when it comes to working alone one of the major downsides is that you don’t have anyone to work with, meaning it can be hard to make friends. On top of this, those that work for themselves tend to work many more hours than those who work for others, which can make it even more tricky.
- Meet clients. Many people who work alone will try to conduct business from the comfort and safety of their own home. However, if you do make the effort to go and have face to face meeting with clients, not only will they be more friendly with you, they will also value you more as a business person.
- Go to networking events and opportunities. If you are invited to any industry party or event you must rsvp in the affirmative if you work alone. This is really your only chance to meet the people that matter in your industry, and get to know people on a personal level as well as a professional one.
- Stay in touch with friends. You may find that you are working 7 days a week at first, and working all hours of the day. However, you must make time for friends and family as much as you can, even if this is only once a week. If you can stay in touch with these people then you will continue to meet new people as well.
- Go out. Don’t just enjoy nights in with friends, make sure that you go out from time to time and relax out of your work persona to speak to people on a personal level instead.
