Andrew, a new member of our club introduces himself

Before introducing myself, thank you to Christopher for taking the trouble to call me as a new member that I am. We can see that we are not here on a “cash machine” commercial platform (I know one on the subject of garages preciselyโ€ฆ). But rather on a collaborative site with members and not customers to exploit.

I worked as a professional (psychologist) until mid-2016, but I also did many other things; university lecturer, beekeeper, book author, manager of a tourism residenceโ€ฆ More than half of my working time has always been self-employed. Whether it was the pension scheme for employees or the self-employed I did not expect to be able to keep my income. And now that I’m retiredโ€ฆ I can confirm it ! And it could be worse for those younger than me.
