I’ve been growing this business for a few years now, but I have always done it on the side alongside a nearly full time job. What can I say, I am risk averse with a London mortgage.
This week I moved to working just two days a week at my day job. Even though this is no ‘quit your day job’ story, for me it is a huge and exciting and terrifying step! I am so grateful that I have been able to find myself in this position and my employers have been brilliant. I am so looking forward to working on new projects, to have the ability to take on more bespoke work and finally get my evenings back. AND being able to take 5 minutes out to enjoy an unseasonably hot and beautiful day!
My new office hours are typically going to be 9.00 am – 6.00 pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and I expect I will quietly work a few weekends during the busy moments. Bubbly this evening to celebrate my first week I think!
