Feel the Fear and do it anyway

Feel the fear

For a while now I’ve been sitting back admiring (and feeling a bit jealous at times) of my peers Matt Collins, Bertie Bosredon, Sam Phillips, Ben Matthews and Zoe Amar. I’ve been admiring the exciting projects they’ve been able to work on with a range of charities and clients and been a bit jealous of their ability to ‘be their own boss’.

So I’m taking the plunge. I’m going freelance*.

I’m not going to lie….part of me finds the thought of the unpredictability of it all absolutely terrifying. But at the same time it’s really, really, REALLY exciting (and oddly liberating) and I can’t wait to get started.

Over the last month or so I have been meeting with accountants, setting up meetings with peers to get some advice, securing some work and getting a website in order (watch this space).

So I’m finishing my full time job next week and then I’m off on a little holiday before starting a part-time Social Media Consultancy role at a PR agency in the first week of September. I’ve also got a training course set up with another agency and I’m really excited about what we will be offering (more of that later).

While I get my website in order feel free to contact me via email, kirstymarrins(at)gmail(dot)com, or via Twitter or LinkedIn.

I look forward to hopefully working with you some day soon!

*Ok, so technically I’ll be freelance three days a week.
