Oh boy, guys!!! I’m over here almost in tears as I process that I’ve been diving deep into the full-time freelance thing for 6 months now, officially. Whaaa??? Whenever the thought crosses my mind, I get a little mad at myself that I didn’t have the confidence to make the leap sooner. Now, I couldn’t be happier. Yes, I’m still constantly learning and soaking everything in, but I am now learning with a clearer mind. It’s been a while since I’ve felt this free to peruse the things that truly make me tick.
Over the last 6 months I’ve gone from being scared to take on work ( in fear that I would be over-working myself again ) —> to taking every freelance job opportunity that came my way out of pure excitement —> to being insanely picky about the projects that come across my table and into my portfolio. I’m very thankful that I’ve been able to focus on what I want and go with my gut. Being clear about what you want really is the solution to “figuring it all out”.
I’m beyond eager to keep growing and sharing the process with you guys. I know I have a long way to go, but it’s not about the destination, right? These days my focus is on building cohesive brand stories for creative businesses and jumping right into the world of photo/prop styling. I’m also eager to build better connections with my readers and just grow my online network in general. You guys are amazing and I love hearing about your stories as well, so keep sharing!.
