I'm interested in hearing people's thoughts and personal experiences on making a transitition from working on clients projects to launching a successful endeavor of their own.
The fun just is not there anymore working on projects for clients, or working for a shop doing work for a multitude of clients. Worse yet, the last couple of years I've had some interesting offers that I did not feel were right for me. I wish I could scream that this is all about money, because it's not. I've actually down sized the number of clients, so I could have some space to breath and time to figure out what I actually want to do. Money is important to me, but not the cornerstone of what motivates me. Do I desire to do something sucessful and make money at it, you betcha I do. However, I want or need to do something fun.
Now, here I am sitting in a room by myself. I'm finding it extremely difficult being my own client. This is well...to be honest..sort of frustrating because normally I have all kinds of ideas and thoughts I bounce off clients. I have come up with a few general ideas, but nothing that has me excited enough yet to do it.
I love to hear from anybody who has gone through a similar experience. Any insight, advice and thoughts from anybody regarding this is dearly appreciated.
