The extremely upbeat kitchen table entrepreneurs at Funky Angel have released a new study based on its 2006 survey of the lifestyles of its core audience which suggests homeworkers are among the happiest in the UK. It also reveals that:
* only eight per cent said they were struggling, mainly due to the feast or famine syndrome, early-stage own businesses or solo parenthood
* 16 per cent reporting that they sometimes felt anxious, 13 per cent saying they felt fed up, 17 per cent feeling frustrated and six per cent of the respondents reporting feeling isolated
Founder Claire Burdett says: "We are seeing a resurgence of a style of living that I would describe as pre-industrial cottage industries with 21st Century communications and technology added in, and I think it's the best thing that's happened to the family in decades!"
