Hi, I run a limited company (I'm the sole employee but employ a number of freelance guides) I was just wondering whether anyone had any advice when it comes to working out how much I actually need to work. In a nutshell, I run a mountaineering and climbing company based in the Scottish Highlands. Most of our days out are private days, at approx £220-240/day, however, the work is somewhat seasonal, with the peak months being Jan-March, May, June and September. April, July an August tick over and November and December are generally quite quiet. I'm asking this, as I've recently separated from my long term partner (she left me), with one of the reasons being that I was far too work focused and pre-occupied with work when not working. I could easily be answering emails at 6am, head out on the hill at 7am, then still do a further 2 to 3 hours of admin in the evenings. I thought it was the right thing to be doing (I didn't particularly enjoy the admin, but thought it was necessary to grow the business). I've since realised that I don't wish to keep expanding the business, which is current VAT registered and making sure we sail past the threshold is quite tricky in itself and not without stress. I've therefore decided to scale down the business and to reclaim more time for myself (which will undoubtedly make me happier), but can anyone give any advice on how to perhaps calculate the number of days myself and my freelance guides need to be out on the hill to make it work for me. I know it's very situational depending, but I've not got any dependants.
