What does it mean realistically? Well initially the idea was fine. Literally one day a week worked in my own hours across the week, a few meetings to attend. Mainly emails and phone calls. If I hate it then it is only maternity cover so it'll only be for a year. Perfect.
But then word got out that I was working again. I updated LinkedIn changing my job description to Freelance Communications Consultant and next thing I knew I had 3 other freelance job offers of varying degrees from people I know. Mind slightly blown.
The reality is I have gone from being a Stay at Home Mum who blogs and makes the odd cake for people to a Freelancer with a decent client portfolio all within a few weeks. I'm a bit worried I may have taken on too much at once but I guess the deep end is often the best place to start if you want to get ahead quickly. It is also the easiest place to drown so I've got to make sure I keep paddling until I reach calmer waters...
... but actually it is all quite exciting!
