Two and a half years ago I decided to start living the life I had always dreamed of and never thought possible. I quit a stable job (that had benefits!) to pursue a life of travel, wander & adventure. I had recently purchased a condo, gotten a dog & created A LOT of expenses in my life. Leaving that income was terrifying but I knew it necessary to find the freedom I was searching for.
That first month of [freedom] was debilitatingly scary. (We bet you’re feeling this way right about now, too)
Would I have clients? Would I be able to provide the experience and deliverables that I was promising? Even through those days, weeks, and months of complete and utter fear, I knew what I was doing. I knew I was supposed to be there and that it would all land me where I was looking to go.
I was searching for a life of freedom and a close, personal relationship with each and every client we brought into our Adventure Toward family. Working at agencies prior to this I wasn’t able to truly connect with the clients I was working with. I was working through a project manager who would just relay details to me, and something was missing. I thrive and am at my most creative when I know I’m helping you live the life you’ve always wanted. A life full of freedom. A life to work when you want, spend time with your loved ones, check out the world while you’re at it.
It didn’t come easy though. I had to figure out HOW I wanted this collaboration to work. Was I going to constantly be available? Was I heading into my clients offices? How did I make sure that my clients had the very best of me, but still protect my boundaries so I still felt that I was living a life of freedom. Was I going to be enough for them? I knew I had the skill set to build beautiful, converting websites but did I have what it took to run a business and fully be able to invest in my clients?
That’s when I realized that being 100% completely always available wasn’t necessary to create the collaborative relationship I was striving for. I just need to be there when I said I would be and communicate properly.
