I've been doing some web work for an old mate who runs an agency. He's been really successful over recent years but as his company focuses on branding, they outsource all of their digital work. On the back of a site I've been working on for him, he's offered me all of his future web work. He's said that the work is worth around £1000 a month and growing. I've obviously bitten his hand off but after the initial elation of 'the big contract' I'm now wondering if it's actually feasible? I work full time and then have my other clients to service (total of about 55-60 hours a week at the moment). My first thought was that if I could find another £250-400 work each month I could give up the PAYE and do this full time, but is that putting too many of my eggs in one basket? If for some reason this mate goes under or packs in, I'll be stuffed. BUT if I can't free up at least some of the time I'm currently spending in paid employment, I can't see how I could find the time to meet all my obligations and canvas for new clients to fill the £250-400 gap. Any advice greatly appreciated.
