To everyone who has said in the last year that I should freelance, start a business, write more, etc. - you were right. You told me so. I am now a maker and a writer. :)
I left my part-time job yesterday. After finishing full-time work, I thought I could maintain what I had for at least a year or two, but only a few weeks ago, realised it's time to take the next step.
So, my plan - holy shit, I have a plan - will be to:
- craft, and
- get experience in the disciplines I want to grow in.
Just in the last week, I've gotten answers to so many long-standing questions about tax, superannuation, personal management, networking, income, finding clients, and maintaining sanity when working for oneself.
There is more to say, but it's only day 1. So far, I have taken a photo of a bee in my garden, gone for a swim, and tidied the study a bit to make room for things to come. This afternoon, I will work on my folio, bid for writing projects, and read about business insurance.
Welcome to my exciting new life.
