So tomorrow is my first real day as a freelancer. Design / finance / business / marketing… everything is now down to little ‘ol me from now on. Should I be nervous or excited? Should I be gung-ho or cautious?
There’s lots of emotions whizzing around my mind but for the most part it’s exciting. If you get past the trepidation and feeling of the unknown, it’s actually empowering to know that everything is now under my control. It’s now only my direction that counts. It’s my business (wow, that sounds weird), and it’s my decisions that result in its success or failure!
With over a decade’s experience in the design industry, I’m hoping I’ve earned my stripes and have enough about me to make my freelance venture a positive one. I have great friends and family supporting me on lots of exciting possibilities so it’s head down and full steam ahead.
Are there any other freelancers out there who can recount their first feelings when going it alone? I’d love to hear from you about your experiences and any tips you may have.
