Well, what do you say?

Woke up this morning remembering that I’d planned to sign in with my client during vacation, to do a check for a kick-off later in August. So I did. And guess what? It was fun. Working is fun (to a degree) too. Sometimes I forget that life is not black or white. It is not…

Life in the fast lane

As self employed I do not whine about lot’s of work. But in the project I am in right now we are close to deadlines and a lot is to be done. But it is fun. I arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon and I don’t have a clue where the day went….

The question

The most common question I get nowadays is if I like being “on my own” aka self-employed. And the answer to it is yes. Yes, and nothing but yes, at least for now. I have during my 1.5 years as self-employed noticed a change in behaviour when you move from role to a needed skill. When you…

Leap

For all of you who are thinking about it. You know, that thing you want to do that is different from what you do today. Do it! For God’s sake do it! Just do it. You might fail, probably not. You will have tough times, but you will have times of ridiculous joy. And no matter how…

Win-win

It is Monday and I am happy. It is as simple as that. The resons for my happiness are multiple. I have received positive feedback (which you know that I am sucker for), gotten the possibility to write some more (pro bono of course) and getting to know new people. I also got a hug and…

Love ’em words

The other day a friend asked me “When were you truly happy in doing your job?” As the positive (here she goes again the self-righteousness woman) individual I am, find happiness any- and everywhere. I see stuff from the bright side, that is just who I am. No, all jobs or parts of work are not…

Get a life

Yes, that is what it feels like I need to do. You know those things you do when you don’t work. I do not have more to do. The kids are at practice as well as the Mr. So what should I do then? Any suggestions (except exercise)? My best suggestion was… clean up and take…

Celebrate good times

The best thing about being self-employed is the fact you (or I) celebrate new assignments. I can’t remember anytime I celebrared the fact I had a job to go to. Maybe I should’ve. Never mind. I do it now.

Post vacation / pre-work analysis

Hmm… four weeks. After four weeks of absolute nothing and everything, it is time to get up and get dressed before 10 o’clock in the morning. It is clear that I love to be around my children and husband doing “nothing”. That nothing meaning to do whatever we feel like (and this summer we also…

Half year report

In four days, I have for six months depended on my own skills, expertise, experience and persona in a slightly different way than the other 32 half years I have had a full time job. I have worked with three new companies that I had no prior experience with and signed a contract for a fourth. I…
