Happy Friday everyone! I couldn’t be more excited for this weekend as it’s supposed to be nice and warm here in Denver. The mister, the pup and I have big plans to go hiking and get some much needed fresh air. For today’s post I wanted to share the second batch of reader questions & my answers. A couple months ago I shared part 1 – Read FAQ Part 1.
Reader Question: As a creative, did you ever face a moment of deciding between a safer, more financially stable path and an option that would give you more creative freedom but also be more risky? (Read How I Got My Start in the Creative Industry)
Answer: Most certainly. I worked at an advertising agency as a Digital Art Director for almost 4 years. During that last year, I debated starting my own company time and time again, but was always paralyzed by fear. Fear of the unknown and fear that I would be making an irreversible decision. It was also convenient and easy to just stay put.
Now that I’m running my own company the allure of a stable salary, health insurance package, and paid time off sounds appealing sometimes. Usually this is when I’m making scary changes to my business or taking a big leap of faith.
The grass is always seems greener right?
