Those thoughts won out for a while. I took a little time off, then had another thought: “Why not?” So what if this doesn’t work? So what if I can’t find clients? I won’t know until I try. My theme word for 2019 is Authenticity. (Ever done a yearly theme word? This is my first. Love it.) Is it being authentic if I hide my talents and keep this all to myself? Nope. Am I being the real me if I don’t put myself out there? Nope again. Without much thinking, a few weeks ago I started social media for my business and sent my portfolio website live. Put it all out there.
And why? I am a helper. A nurturer. An Enneagram 9. My day job is helping kids. My outside life is helping to raise a daughter and nurture a marriage. So why should my hobby be any different? I know how to make websites, and I enjoy doing it. I want to help others with something they may not know about or want to take the time with, but something that would be a very helpful tool for their business or themselves. I also want people to feel at home and comfortable designing their site and working with me. Professional yet friendly, like your friend who will drink a margarita with you and then design and build your website. 🙂
So, I’m here. I’m enough. I’ve started a business. I’m a freelance website designer and builder. And I want to help. Keepin’ it authentic since 2019. 😉
