I’d be writing freelance for a few years before buying the domain, but setting up the website and officially starting the business was a big step. I was now doing this full time, rather than on the side while I had another “real” job.
It was exciting and maybe a little scary, but I’m glad I did it. There have, of course, been ups and downs but it’s been a great five years overall. I’ve learned more in this last five years than I thought would be possible. I’ve had many great experiences and worked with many wonderful people.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone that I have worked with over the last five years (and those that I worked with even earlier, for putting me on this path.) I hope for another five years and then many more after that! I’m looking forward to it.
