Going Freelance…

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: April 26, 2008

Well, after a lot of thought, I’ve officially decided that I’m going to try the freelance thing again. I know. I know. It’s a hell of a lot easier said than done, but this is a work in progress. I’m not talking about quitting my job tomorrow. I’m going to start doing small jobs on the side again to build my portfolio. I also need to get my finances in better shape.

So why am I considering this? If you look through some of my past posts, you will see that I am very bored with my job. I know what type of work I want to do, and I know I’m good at it.

When I finished school, I pictured myself getting a cool job doing something different that would give me some great experience. Now, I have learned a lot through my current job. From a business standpoint, it opened me up to things I didn’t know about. I’ve also learned a lot about my local government. Things I didn’t know before because I had never taken the time to learn. But at the same time, I actually want to work. I like to have goals and things to work towards. I am lacking that. Everything is so sporadic. Plus, where I live it’s hard to find a job doing what I REALLY want to be doing. There is not a lot of opportunity, and I’m not in a position to up and move. Someday, but not now.

I’ve always wanted to do this, but I don’t think I was ever in the right place to seriously consider it. I am now. I’ve started taking the appropriate steps, and I’ve done my research. The transition is going to take some time, and I’m perfectly okay with that.
