So as of yesterday (well Tuesday) my life took a turn and I’m officially a freelancer. I am my own boss. The only person that can put me down or pick me up now is me.
I am scared fucking shitless, it’s nerve wrecking and daunting and I feel like I’m way in over my head but at the same time I am beyond excited, I’m happy and giddy and completely ready for this.
I’ve already registered a domain (well The Person did) and am just waiting for it to verify so that I can get my website going. I keep having new ideas and more ideas of things to put up on it. I’ve already started putting my portfolio together and have taken on 3 projects since yesterday.
Do I know what I’m doing? Not at all. BUT I have the most supportive tribe ever. Everyone who’s heard I’ve gone freelance has sent me congrats and well wishes and it makes me think that being thrown into it was a blessing in disguise. I’m looking at this positively.
What I have done (even though only a few days in) is stick to my schedule of getting up and ready for work early. I have bills and school fees and stuff that needs paying so I there’s no being lazy, I’ve got to stick with it. Wake up early, work till midnight if I have to. I can and will do this.
Soon as Charlie Foxtrot is up I’ll share it here. All your support no matter how big or small is appreciated xxx
