MT Week - New Year, new changes
Hey, happy new year!
I hope you’ve had a restful December while Money Talk was on hiatus - I certainly needed a break after a hectic year of freelancing in 2021.
As I mentioned in the last MT Week before the break (and in a little more detail in an earlier newsletter for premium subscribers), I wanted to take some time off to regroup for a new iteration of Money Talk.
So I’m starting this newsletter in reverse to announce that for 2022, Money Talk will be focusing on content for freelancers.
In part, this reflects the fact that I went full-time freelance last January for the first time in five years and suddenly had a lot of questions to ask. Like what’s the deal with pensions for freelancers? And should I become a limited company or stay a sole trader?
In trying to find the answers to these questions, I also discovered that there was a woeful lack of information specifically for freelancers.
So Money Talk, I hope, will help fill that void for myself and other freelancers.
That’s not to say the newsletter will be exclusively freelancer finance, though - there will still be a lot of content that’s applicable to everyone.
As ever, if you think someone would benefit from Money Talk, forward it to them. And of course, you can also support me in the coming year by signing up for a premium subscription - it’s just £10 a year right now.
In the meantime, read on for some of the important money stories you may have missed from the tail-end of 2021.
PS, for an insight into the newsletter writing process, here’s a piece I wrote for AllBright.
