My Dream Job - #BEDM 21

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I hope I don't sound smug and make you want to hurl things at me when I say this, but I'm pretty happy with what I am doing right now. Freelance graphic design had always been something I'd thought about and had tucked away neatly in the 'maybe one day' pile at the back of my mind. But being faced with redundancy at the beginning of 2013, with local design jobs as rare as hen's teeth, I decided to go for it.

The one thing that held me back in the past - and this is going to sound utterly, utterly ridiculous - was not really knowing how I would deal with all of the admin and accounting stuff. As it turns out there is an abundance of information available. All it took was a Google search, which tells me that I didn't want to make it happen badly enough. Most people say "I should've done it years ago" when you talk to them about being self employed, but for me I think the time was right. I wasn't ready before. It all fell into place, the stars aligned, the ducks waddled into a row and away I went.

I'm currently gathering content for my website and pinning office interiors on Pinterest - planning my move from the dining room table upstairs to our spare room.
