“I feel like I lost my job.” 27 years old and this was the second time I had ever said those words. The first time was three years earlier, when I launched out to start my freelance web business. Always an adventure.
I was teasing a good friend about losing his internet connection the other night…then I came home to a dead line at my house. Cruel irony. Though this issue drove me to public wifi for several hours, I wanted to share a few ABC’s for the digital nomad with a non-functional home office.
I love meeting people who live, work, and breathe the web industry. There are plenty of places I would like to go and people I would like to meet, but sometimes the “right” connections are right here in my own backyard.
I’d love to glorify my current calendar mess and say something like, “I’m moving into a new studio space.” The cameras would slowly pan across my minimalist desk, the dim lighting would reveal the razor-sharp edges of my Apple hardware, and the piles of notebooks would remind you of Ray Bradbury, not this hectic freelancer.
Owning a business is about doing the right thing and having the confidence that what you’re doing is going to work.
