Home Truths on Business

Punchline in Scot-BuzzPunchline has been featured on Scot-Buzz in relation to Scotland’s home-based businesses, and the vital contribution they make to Scotland’s economy. Home-based enterprises account for half of all Scottish businesses and sustain nearly one in five private sector jobs in Scotland, according to new research by FSB in Scotland.

With an eye for the next big thing in comedy, Rosalind Romer has the envious job of touring comedy festivals around the UK talent spotting for her next comedy show. Seann Walsh and Josh Widdicombe are just two of the latest comedians to have featured at one of Punchline’s events before having gone on to achieve their own TV shows.

There’s a Scottish tour planned for later this year, so Rosalind is working hard from her home-based business in Edinburgh. When I spoke to her about why she had chosen to work from home her response reflected the growing trend in the small business community today.

My business isn’t restricted to an office, even a home based office. I travel all over the UK attending comedy festivals so I’m used to working from my phone, a coffee shop – anywhere really. I think that’s how lots of small businesses work today and I think it’s much more culturally acceptable than it was before.”
