Happy self-employed-iversary to me! Last week was officially one whole year since I packed up my desk at my 9-to-5 job and went off on my own to work as a freelance copywriter. Since then, I’ve had some amazing opportunities, met incredible clients and fellow freelancers, and learned a lot of things that, looking back, I couldn’t have predicted in June last year when I was sharpening my pencils and waiting for my first client to make an appearance.
To celebrate my year in freelance, I had the chance to guest post on one of my favourite blogs (one that has always been a huge supporter and friend of Desk Life Project), Ladies Who Launch! Emma from Ladies Who Launch published my story to their blog last week, and I thought this would be a good chance to share it here too for anyone who is in their first year of freelance life and wondering what the heck they’re doing this for.
