Since sometime in 2007, I have had the fortune to be self-employed. The process was at first frightening, quickly evolved into empowering and eventually phased into a quite comfortable space. Like all things, the work had its ups and downs, but when everything was added up, it definitely netted positive. If you asked me a few months ago if I saw myself moving back into an employed role, I would have laughed it off. Things change.
Starting this week, I will be taking a job at Adaptive Path and I could not be more excited. I had the chance to work as a contractor for Adaptive Path for the past few months and I instantly enjoyed the environment and approach towards solving problems. I have learned so during my time with AP – I especially enjoy the fact that I am surrounded by people much smarter than I.
This transition to a full-time position should have a positive impact on this blog. We all know working for oneself in any web/design related field can be erratic. In this new role, I am expecting a more even-keel work/life balance which should give me more time to devote towards substantive content on Some Random Dude. All the ideas I have spoke about this blog have not been forgotten – with a more predictable schedule, I should be able to realize them.
Have I mentioned that I am excited? Because I totally am.
