Just in case you're wondering whether I'm a real person, or a construct created by a vast and evil corporation to exploit you (the self-employed masses), worry not.
I am really me.
A bit older and a bit fatter than in the photo, but still a properly real member of the self-employed tribe.
Not that I'm not averse to the odd bit of exploitation, oh no. Us small business folk need all the help we can get, I'd say, and friends and family can be a good first port of call!
And mine have been superhelpful, thank you everyone.
