      I would love to work for myself but the problem I have always faced is 

1. When I first started this as a hobby I wanted to do work for small bands 
but it seemed that everyone who I approached had a relative, friend or pet 
that knew basic HTML or used FrontPage and would do the job for them for a 
few guest list places. Now, with the advent of MySpace this seems just as 
much of a problem.
2. I work away from home when I'm printing and cannot always deal with 
problems as they arise.

        Could you give me an example of this, I don't really understand what 
you mean.

Thanks again.
