Category: Career changing
This blog is all about career changing – and it’s even changed as my idea of a good career has evolved!
Welp, it’s like this…
See, I was in the insurance field. And I was working as a business analyst a lot of the time.
This … stank.
But I knew I could leave if I could find something or other to do in its stead.
I had always loved writing. But could it be the centerpiece of my career changing? I was not sure, to start.
Career Changing in Stages
You know, the United States is supposed to be a freeish society where you can more or less be anything, if you work hard.
Now, we all know that that conveniently forgets issues of class, race, economics, etc.
But one thing that is absolutely true about this ideal is that there is no one and nothing tying us to land or city. Even a farm can presumably sell the old homestead, go elsewhere, and buy a new homestead.
So, you would think that career changing would be a snap, eh?
Yet the truth is that is just kind of is not.
A Snap That Took Years
First of all, I had to get out of the company where I was working. And then, I had to do some work to start to build a reputation. But the truth is, I had little to no plan and I really just started freelancing.
I was fortunate to get a few clients and I was suddenly kind of busy. Some of them I liked. Others? Not so much. But I was making some degree of cash.
In the Meantime…
NaNo started to happen, and of course Untrustworthy happened.
And now, here we are.
