Q&A #7 - Is it Essential to move to London for UK work?
I was asked if it was a sensible move to go to London to further my career. For me it was because I was based in Dundee in Scotland before. Being 500 miles away from what is arguably the Cultural capital of the UK It just made the most sense. Here are a few factors you have to weigh up when moving to somewhere so expensive and big.
Don't just jump right in unless you have cash
I didn't just jump straight into London because of establishing the core base of my clients and work. Instead I commuted 11 hours on a bus one way to get to London to do a job and if it was several days then i would try to get to sleep on someones floor as I build more connections and friends.
Then when i had a decent set of equipment I then put all the money I was getting into living. It was then a lot easier once I was close to get even more jobs and grow more.
