Equipment You should always try and work out what equipment can be purchased and maintained as part of your business, computers, printers, but also equipment you need for your practice, instruments, staging, props, costumes, set pieces, tents, rigging gear, lighting, sound, the list goes on. • What do you own?

Phone? Anything else tech based that needs maintenance?
