Becoming a Freelancer

Oct 30, 2008 | Design

I must admit that most people would not become a freelancer the same way I am. Since I am quitting my job before doing any freelance work, it’s frightening. I think I’m learning a lot about myself and human nature through this process.

I made the decision after praying a lot, fasting, studying the Bible, and looking into my own heart and dreams. I felt peace, and that God was putting the decision in my hand. He would be with me on either path I walked.

So I submitted my resignation.

Today is my last day of work, and tomorrow I’m solely a freelance graphic designer. I’ll tell you something… when you think about something, it’s exciting. When you step out and actually do it, that’s where the adventure takes over. It’s a lot easier to criticize how someone else is making decisions when you are on the sidelines. When you jump into the process and step out, that’s when you find out what you’re made of.

I’m diving in.
