Sometimes you have to just take a leap of faith though as a Dutch Midwesterner that leap did not come with out some hesitation, careful considerations, and planning. That being said, I did it! Quit the jobjob I had been threatening to do maybe since, oh I don't know, its inception? I am not ungrateful, the 7 years I spent with this company taught me a lot and I met an incredible amount of amazing people. But my heart belonged elsewhere so exactly 4 months ago I left the world of salary and benefits to return to freelance and adjunct teaching. What a whirlwind this has been but so far, exceeding expectations.
When you work for yourself, you definitely work harder but is it really work when you are doing what you love?
