It seems that the recession is encouraging people to think about starting their own business, as predicted in one of my previous postings.
I met a City based lawyer who was positively relishing the prospect of being made redundant from her well paid, but boring job. She could wait to start investing her redundancy money into a business venture.
I was also rather suprised to see that Skype had a large stand at the show, but a company representative assured me that Skype are making a healthy profit. Although their computer to computer calls are free, they don’t cost Skype anything. For calls to landlines they share the profits with the local phone company.
