Being first can feel great. Being first can feel scary. Being first can feel uncertain.
Whichever way it is, someone has to be first. Whether we like it or not, life is full of firsts. No-one really remembers the second time they did anything, do they? Nothing compares to the first.
My new journey into the freelance word is full of firsts. My first week not being employed by someone else. My first website. My first email. The first time time I said 'can I give you my business card, maybe I can help you?' The first contract I applied for. The first proposal. The first interview. The first email saying I was successful...
For my first client, it's a first too - their first consultant. There's lots for us to work out together. The process hasn't been at all as I had expected, which has given me a glimpse into their organisation. I can see even before my first day with them how I can help. It feels good. I'm hoping it will be the first of many.
If you're thinking about doing something differently, you can no longer be my first, but you can still take the first step. Get in touch if you think I can help you.
