I apologize for a blog post delay of 2 weeks. A lot has changed for me during this time.
I went to Santa Barbara, California on April 3rd to work on site with my client, FunnelDash. During that time, I was offered a full-time position with the company. I accepted.
Last Wednesday, I signed the paperwork that makes me officially a full-time employee of FunnelDash.
I’m excited, I’m nervous, I’m terrified and I’m thrilled, all at the same time.
This opportunity is just too good to pass up. I’ll be helping to build a phenomenal company that has an awesome product. I’ll get to learn tons, even if it is all trial by fire. And I’ll be working with an incredible team of people, some of whom are former colleagues from other companies.
This changes a lot of things for me.
First, I am now down to one “client.” I’ll be focusing exclusively on work for them. I won’t be taking on new clients any time in the foreseeable future.
In fact, I’ve already notified all of my freelance copywriter clients who have projects in the works or who were just starting projects with me, that I can finish what we’re working on, but after that, I’ll have to refer them to another copywriter.
Honestly, this feels weird. Especially since my last post was wishing a Happy Birthday to my blog and my freelance copywriter business.
I was very excited about being my own boss again. And there is still very much that feeling with my new company. But I will be an “employee” with reviews, responsibilities and deadlines, etc.
Granted, most of this is exactly what I’ve been doing for my clients. Nothing will be drastically different, at least to begin with. But ultimately, it is a shift for me. A good one, I hope.
I will continue to blog about running a small business and offering ideas for small business owners to grow their own businesses. This is something near and dear to my heart. I want to support all of you, regardless of my employment status.
I’m still working for a small business, so I hope I’ll be able to share some of what I’m learning, in ways you can apply it to your own businesses.
I also want to hear from you. Let me know what you think. Let me know how you’re doing.
Thanks, as always, for following along on my crazy journey,
