Last Day

Today is my last day of my day job. I am not as worried as I thought I would be. I have a lot going for me along with 17 years of building contacts. I said I was going freelance and immediately had 2 business ask if I would sort out their entire computer set ups. I do not consider myself that brilliant at computers, but a lot of people have more faith in me than I do.

Theres an art shop that want to sell prints of my doodles in town. I have had indie publishers looking out for a collected Tales of the Blue Moon. My current company are asking if after a few months break I would be available for freelance PR work.

On top of that I keep saying to myself I will want a break before kicking into gear with my new freelance life. In all honesty, I am ready to go you know?  The energy is there, even if the brain is not quite engaged yet.

I wonder if I will feel differently tomorrow…

    I can’t wait to watch you document your business growth in this blog. I predict sooner or later, you will have your own business, office suite and staff.

      I had not thought about staff and such. My hallway office will do for now, my log cabin home in the highlands is what I aim for. 🙂

      Takes a long time to get to the point where you are confident to leave though aye? We are about the same age, so lifes not so short you can’t reach that goal!

    Congratulations! I know you will do well in your new business adventures. You obviously have not been slouching off for the last 17 years. I bet it feels good to already be in demand. Best wishes!

      Thank you, yeah 17 years of being front and centre in my company has left me in a bit of an ideal situation for creating demand for myself heh.

    I am looking to be self employed by next years end. I am almost done writing my book and freelance photography as well as my short film preproduction. Writing my books and videography for 2017 hopefully everything goes right.
