During my journey there have been some bumps in the road, the biggest one was the conversation with The Wife explaining that I wanted to give up my salaried job in pursuit of starting a new business, freelancing, in a world pandemic, with no client list.
Tricky conversation at the time but luckily I married a good one, who is so understanding. Luckily it didn’t take long for the phone to ring and now I have worked and continue to work with some great people.
My biggest success at a personal level was receiving my first paid invoice for work I did for a client. That was the big moment for me because I knew that I made the right decision starting my business.
At a professional level, already having testimonials, reviews and delighted customers, tells me I’ve made a difference which really makes what I do, so much more enjoyable.
