When I started my own company and became a freelancer in November last year, I immediately started to rent a desk at a local marketing agency/co-working space. I did so because I thought that I needed the support, company and “safety”.
I need to be free
You see, the main reason why I even wanted to start my own company and become a freelancer was that I wanted to have more freedom. I had a strong need to be free.
I thought I’d still have that feeling of freedom when I worked at the Bertills & Jung office, but somehow I didn’t. Nor did I even go into the office most days… And every day that I skipped the office, I felt like I was letting someone down (not a great feeling to live with).
Now that I’ve called the quits on my spot at their office, I finally feel free again. And I love it. It even feels like I’ve gained some new energy!
Not that I didn’t like having a desk at Bertills & Jung. Quite the opposite actually, I loved it! And I was so honored that I even got to rent a desk over there, and be a part of their little “co-working-crew”. But, freedom is apparently more important to me than to be a part of an office community, at the moment.
Work dates at cafés
Now that I am free again, and don’t have an office that I “have to go to”, I can work from wherever I want.. The couch, the kitchen table, the bed… AND, I can go on work dates at cafés with inspiring women like Sandra and Julia, like I did today.
Being a freelancer and having my own company is awesome!
