An interview with a freelance writer and editor
Do you also sometimes think that being an adult sucks? That all this unlimited access to candy and late night shows is not worth it?
All these responsibilities and decision making!
There isn’t a day where you don’t have to decide about stuff, and it all starts before you even notice it: when you have to decide about your future career – something you’ll be spending 40 hours a week on for the next 40 years.
According to the statistics, roughly 50% of us didn’t do well with this one already. Whether it’s the field itself, the colleagues or the working hours – in 2014, 52.3% of Americans were unhappy with their jobs.
Why? Because, being the responsible adults we are supposed to be, we’d rather stick to a boring but secure job within our comfort zone than look around for something better outside of it.
How would you like to be working from home?
In your field or in a different one. Making pajamas to your new “work cloths”, spending more time with the family, taking vacations when you need them.
Ah, it only works for some smart young people with no responsibilities and some seed money!
Or does it?
What if I told you you don’t need the money? Moreover, you don’t even have to be young or smart (not that I doubt your mental capacity).
