On this episode we discuss:

  • How to prepare your finances and give you enough time before taking the jump from a corporate job to freelance.
  • Checking always with ourselves on the opportunities that come our way, and pursue them if they feel right.
  • How we’re all still figuring all out!
  • How the cool people are also humans and we appreciate them more when we see them as people that makes mistakes and are also figuring stuff out.
  • Being real about what it takes to build this career.
I started out when I graduated college in Graphic Design. My first job was in publishing, funny enough is where I ended up now 20+ years later!
