I feel as though I am on the brink of something very exciting and nerve-wrecking at the same time. As I release this post I will be off to work for the last time.
Yes the time has come around already for me to leave the safety of a salary and embark on my journey into self-employment. Now I understand that there are a lot of people out there who are already self employed, even some of my best friends, but for someone who has always been an employee, ever since finishing university, this is quite a scary prospect. One I am relishing though.
Luckily I have been offered some ongoing contracting work with my current employer which will help the transition while still giving me the freedom to choose when to work. I feel very privileged to be offered this lifeline as this reduces the need for me to make money instantly from my own creations. I do, however, understand that this work is not guaranteed to last indefinitely so I will have to be productive to make sure the offer stays open.
You may be thinking about why I picked today’s photo, well I took this while living in Sydney. It is a pleasant reminder of what freedom feels like. I was just wandering lazily around the harbour and decided to stop for a while and take a photo. I remember resting my little compact camera on a wooden piling and taking my time as there was no rush to be anywhere else.
