Wow, that was quick. I had been “officially” doing freelance for all of 1 day before I got the job offer I alluded to in a previous post. Freelance was looking really promising, but after giving it some thought, I decided to accept the offer.
The reason for my decision was 3-fold…
- Stable Income – The biggest fear (for me) about going freelance was the loss of a stable income. Sure, I had some money saved for any lulls in work that might occur, but having a consistent paycheck is pretty sweet.
- Freelance Isn’t Going Anywhere – It’s not. If the job doesn’t work out, I can pick up right where I left off and go back to freelance.
- Great Opportunity – The job I was offered is an amazing opportunity to do a lot of great work on a pretty high-profile site. I’d be a fool to pass this up.
“What is this Great Opportunity?” you ask. Well, on November 13th I’ll be joining the design team at Urban Outfitters. Yeah, pretty fantastic, right?
