Today, we wrapped up the last client at Corgibytes. Sad, indeed. For the past two years, I've worked with my husband building websites and apps. But, after three very expensive lessons in a row, we had to pivot. So, Scott accepted a full-time job and will continue to build apps in his spare time.
Where does that put me? For awhile I felt like I was in a professional vacuum. My job at Corgibytes was development, marketing and customer service. Now that we've changed our business model, there's little need for me.
So, I'm going back to my roots, with a twist. For six years, I've worked as a professional writer and I've worked with some amazing organizations (especially over the past year). I started to notice a common thread — my favorite clients are all working to make the world a better place. So, that's where I'm putting my stake in the ground. Communication services for non-profits and socially-conscious businesses.
We'll see where this new adventure takes me — but the destination doesn't really matter, I'm just enjoying the ride.
Have you ever had to reinvent yourself? How did it turn out?
