I am a freelancer.
Specifically, I’m a freelancer who left her job in a crappy economy because it wasn’t right for her.
I know what you’re saying, shaking your head at me. Security is important, a regular pay check is important, being gainfully employed is important. There may even be some mutterings on being spoiled, those Millennials and their…. expectations. And those are all valid things to say when you don’t know the full story and maybe someday I’ll share. But today, today is about the excitement of freelancing, of being my own boss.
Working for myself means that I can go with my gut, write to a stranger and pitch an idea or ask for some mentoring. People are awesome and giving when you work for yourself, especially when it’s new and you’re so so excited and scared and it’s written all over your face.
I’m getting in some quality coffee shop time today – daydreaming and writing proposals and emails that will probably lead to nothing but may, oh may, lead to something cool and awesome. I’m terrified and it’s the best feeling in my life, to face my fears and really reach for my goals.
P.s. I believe in sharing! If there’s anything that I can do for you, any help or mentoring or anything, please contact me. Good luck should always be shared!
