Surviving lockdown

< Back

2020 was an unusual year, with many people facing unprecedented difficulties in going to work as normal, and even paying the bills.

Meet Neil, a professional DJ who went from having his busiest year to seeing a year’s bookings cancelled overnight. See how his UW business made sure that he not only continued to cover life’s expenses, he was also able to find a new work-life balance he didn’t previously think was possible.

‘Since lockdown I've had a chance to consider what's important. Beforehand it was all guns blazing, you've got to work, you've got to work. UW is that great opportunity that you can devote as much time as you want to, and for me moving forward wanting to keep a better work-life balance than I had previously... it's perfect.’ Neil, Professional DJ
