    Has the terrible weather over the last few days impacted your business?

    I can do a lot of my work online from home but it has stopped me getting into the office until today.

    If anything I think the bad weather will increase online sales?

    It might seem like a strange question but is there no type of insurance you can take out for a seasonal business? I once looked at illness cover for myself but it was going to cost a few hundred pounds a month and wasn’t worth it.

    I don't think there is. I have Liability Insurance cover plus good cover for myself should I be injured etc, all Winter I have been doing handyman work for one of my customers that I do outside grounds maintenance for. They insisted on having the Liability Insurance for working on site. So I negotiated the cost for the insurance from them. its a Win-Win. I made some extra money over the winter when I normally would not have, and they got me scoring off all the odd jobs they needed done from the To-Do-List.

    Yes the weather has a big impact on a lot of my outdoor work, we have a new hotel to photograph for a client they need good weather shots but have a pressing deadline, will it be the typical Scottish grey day, blowing a gale or a white out we have no idea but we need to deliver and that's going to be difficult unless we are blessed with the weather or client wants.

    We have had a couple of pretty good days this week, blue skies, I hope you get the chance to get your photos. it is sickening when you have to depend on the weather, I lost around a months money last year because of the rain across the summer months.
