Launching my own agency was anything but a smooth ride.
I quit my 9 to 5 job with big hopes and even bigger dreams.
But I was overworked - answering emails at 3 am, delivering projects on Sunday afternoons, mising BBQs, birthdays, and everything in between.
But I LOVED every minute of it.
The late nights, the meetings, the contracts, the raving reviews from clients. The MONEY. It's all I had ever wanted and had worked so hard to achieve.
And even though I did little of anything else, I couldn't have been happier.
But I continued for another 5 years until WHAT I wanted started to change.
I no longer wanted back-to-back meetings. I wanted to spend the afternoon coloring with my kids.
I no longer wanted big lucrative contracts. I wanted time to watch Frozen (for the gazillionth time).
I no longer wanted to trade my time for money. I WANTED FREEDOM.
