Never look back
I finally did it! Something I've been meaning to do for a long time coming now – quit my job to work for myself!
I've been working towards this since the start of this year, and it took me quite a few months to really make it happen. It certainly hasn't been easy, and I'm sure it's not going to be completely smooth sailing here on out, but I can already see the benefits working for yourself offers. Like a new relationship, my self-employment is in the honeymoon phase, but I cannot wait to get more clients so I can start working on projects I have in mind.
'What do you do' might I hear you ask? Well, I'm kind of a jack of many trades... I write, which sounds broad, and well, I guess it is. I write lifestyle, fashion, and design content. I also write and/or edit print and online copy. I conduct and place together interviews that take a look inside a persons life. I'm a social media nerd. I write strategy for brands' online presence. I create press releases and newsletters, including the design. All in all, I'm a writer and communications strategist.
So, I welcome you to my mini office space! It's really not much at this point, in fact, it's quite literally a nook in my little apartment. But this little nook will give me the freedom to do what I want and in doing so, I'll love what I do. Writing has always been a big part of my life, but recently it's really taken a back seat. I now plan on giving this little space on the interwebs lots of love and care, and help it grow up to be the blog I always wanted it to be.
