For as long as I can remember since I’ve first started freelancing, I’ve been told countless times by others how lucky I am. This gets brought up quite often in many conversations with others when I get asked what it is I do for a living. Some of these conversations usually end up with me being told how easy my life was and how fortunate I am to be able to work from home and living the dream all at the same time. Now, don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a blog post about me complaining to others about how wrong this might be but instead is a post explaining to others at least, what is it like for me when it comes to freelancing and working from home. So, what does working from home mean to me?
When it comes to freelancing or managing a team I normally don’t post much about my experiences. I do however make exceptions if it makes for a great lesson. For this particular blog post, I’m going to walk you through one of the startups I was working for. Particularly why it failed. For everyone’s own personal protection, however, I won’t be mentioning any names. Before I dive into this I do want to mention that I have full permission to disclose the following information.
