Taking the plunge and leaving the secure world of PAYE is something most people will have contemplated at some point. Whether the motivation is greater flexibility, the ability to work for yourself or just the desire to no longer be a small cog in a big wheel; we all wonder about life on the other side. It might be a generalisation but it seems that it is a leap that men are often more confident taking than women. Why is this? Are we inherently more risk averse? Do we worry about failure more? Maybe it’s a confident issue? Whatever it is the reality is the only thing that is really holding us back is... us.
