SO, here I am.
I was just laid off from my full time position as an inhouse creative for a large national marketing organization. Yet, I just wrapped up one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
I attended the 2010 Creative Freelancer Conference after finding out that my company refused to send me to the 2010 HOW Design Conference. This has now set me on a path. We were to write down on a card our goals at the conclusion of the CFC. The first one I wrote down was to have gone 100% freelance in 6 months. This is now a reality. After attending the CFC and many serendipitous moments later, I found my self in attendance at the 2010 HOW Design Conference. Many people have offered their help and guidance down this path that I am now headed down. I can not thank everyone enough for all their kind words and tips.
This is going to be an adventure. Yes, I am scared. Yes, I feel like I do not know what I am doing. BUT, I now have the tools and the momentum to get me to where I want to go.
