Time to make a change
Tuesday, December 1st, 2009
Two weeks ago I met with my boss at A7 Creative to let him know that I was planning to leave as of 18th December. Although I’ve enjoyed myself at A7, with the diversity of work and the flexibility that they’ve offered me, there are a few reasons that I have now chosen to freelance.
Firstly, there’s the new addition to the family that is coming along right around the corner. To make it work, I’m just gonna have to have complete control over how & when I work, more than I would be willing to ask of any employer.
Secondly, I’ve been wanting to run a business for a few years now. Although I didn’t envisage it being in a freelancing/consulting capacity, it made sense when I thought about it. Why jump in trying to do something new? Surely it would be sensible to do the thing that I’ve been doing for…
10 years. That’s the third reason, or at least part of the third reason. As well as my second child, 2010 will bring with it my 30th birthday (oy vey) and my 10th year in full-time employment as a web developer. The long and short of it is, it’s time for me to do this for myself.
So, there you have it. 2010 here I come. It’s gonna be HUGE.
