Was it easy finding work?
It’s easy finding English teaching hours, but not finding a fulltime contract – well nigh impossible, so it means a certain amount of instabililty, especially if you’re single. Setting up as an autoentrepreneur is not particularly difficult BUT the status has changed since it first started up and the government keeps changing the goalposts, so you’ve really got to keep on top of changes in legislation. For anyone who’s an autoentrepreneur, I’d recommend the French website which keeps you uptodate on all the changes that might affect you and gives loads of (free) ideas on how to promote your business etc. www.planete-auto-entrepreneur.com
Do you have a business / website / blog?
My business is called Just Massage, it provides a home massage service around Mérignac, Pessac and the surrounding area. I have a blog/website there’s a Facebook link on the blog, monthly massage offers (one coming up soon for French Mother’s Day on May 31st) and lots of homemade beauty recipes I share, among other things.
