I have been following the conversation by @cpappas 10 Advantages to Becoming an eLearning Freelancer:
and the follow up rebuttal post by Jason Fletcher on the ELNet Site:
And I realised one thing:
How great and liberating it feels to be free.
Yes Mr. Fletcher I do my own cleaning, my own accounts and I even make my own coffee but you know what I am FREE !
I have gone from 15 phone hook up meetings a week to maybe three (and that is my choosing).
I have gone from 30 min lunch break to watching FOX SPORTS lunch time wrap for one hour.
I have gone from travelling to Canberra in the middle of June to sleeping in and hearing the airport fog report and freeway chaos on the radio.
I have gone from having numerous staff reporting to me to my wife asking me if I got to do the washing today.
I have gone from sleepless nights to staying up all night watching the FIFA World Cup
I have gone from 8 Aspirin a week to one a month.
Yes Mr. Fletcher the pay is not as good, yes you do miss the social interaction but do I miss it overall – NO WAY.
For now I will relax, review , explore my horizon, explore the opportunities that may present themselves, develop my skills, network with my peers, do the laundry and enjoy a break.
One thing is for sure – I don’t miss those Tuesdays where I went from a 9:00 a.m. phone meeting right thru to 3:30 p.m. phone meeting with a 30 min break for lunch and toilet – no Mr Fletcher that I don’t miss.
Follow your dream!
