I also like the fact that there’s no real editing or uploading to do, unlike the Ditch the Day Job Diaries, which take ages.

So far, I’ve got six tips for you (although the last one is VERY daft indeed). Vine videos play automatically I’m afraid, and to hear the audio you may have to click on the ‘unmute’ symbol in the top left corner.

Tip #4: Take a dance break

Tip #5 (in 5 parts): Sometimes, to be your own boss you have to kick your own arse. (Or, if you don’t sit down to do it, the work ain’t gonna get done.)
