It’s almost been a year since I decided to quit my job and go freelance. I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone, and how much I’ve achieved over the past 8 months. Receiving The Drum 50 Under 30 award recently (you can go see a snippet of the interview here, full feature available in February’s magazine), has really put into perspective how far I’ve come.
Being my own boss means I need a lot of motivation and discipline. During the winter months, it’s all too easy to pull the laptop into the bedroom and curl up in bed and do emails. I’m not ready to rent myself office space (after all, that defeats the reason I quit my 9-5 in the first place, flexibility!), however I do want to keep home and work separate to some degree; that’s why having an office space I love is super important.
It’s about time my office had some TLC, and this is what I’m thinking of! We’ve already began moving the furniture, re-plastering where we took down a monitor and ordered some new storage and paint.
