I talked to my boss today and told her that I'll be leaving to work on Draft full-time. 🎉
I've spent the last two years preparing to start a business, but I wasn't able to commit to something until Coronavirus hit. My employer had to cut my hours in half, so I started picking up freelance technical writing jobs.
I've dabbled with side projects for years, but I've never offered a service where customers lined up to pay me real money immediately...until now. In the first month, I got 6 clients and booked enough revenue to offset my salary reduction.
I know I have a lot to learn, but for me, the next step wasn't more learning. It was finally committing.
