Freelance fading?

Freelance fading?

As most of my followers and friends know I love freelance work, its my life, passion and has been my career direction for just over 8 years. Just as most things in life change I have found myself slowly gravitating to a partial office job. I am not talking 9-5 everyday, ideally my “dream employment” would be a creative studio that has flexible hours and is fun to work with.

Well as luck (even though I don’t believe in luck) has it I may have possibly found that company or at least a very ideal candidate. Now of course I have many freelance opportunities remaining and will never truly leave the profession. I am just thinking a slow fade to a onsite job could be in my near future.

I am not one to count my chickens or celebrate too soon, but my gut has me thinking this change is exactly how I can refresh my creative juices. Maybe it will last 6 months or maybe 6 years, I just don’t want to ever miss an opportunity for the fear of the unknown.

All this being said, what is your opinion on freelance vs. full-time? How do you define your “perfect job”?

    You know my stance, seeing as I started today at my desk job. You should do it especially if you believe you found a suitable candidate to make that a possibility.

    Job stands for Just Over Broke.

    That said, I’ve done the W2 once when the company really was great to work for; I had been consulting with them for a few months, and really liked what I saw. When things went south, I just went back to consulting. I say, follow your heart. If it feels right, it is.

    “perfect job” humm hard to define but you have to work on something you have your heart in or you’ll feel miserable and won’t be able to perform well. Also one that gives you a chance of having a professional life as well as a personal one. Anyways follow your heart and it will guide you to the right path.
