  • Hi Jessica! I had emailed you the day when I read this post - because I was contemplating a very similar move. Not long after emailing you, I finally decided to take the plunge myself!

    I just finished my first week as a full time freelancer and am LOVING my new life! I wanted to thank you for posting your story, because I found it so helpful to read about someone else in the exact same position as me!

    (I wrote a similar article from my own perspective on this move on my blog - I hope you don't mind me linking to it below! I also just submitted it to WIM last night - I hope it makes the cut, lol!)

    Anyway, BEST WISHES to you in your new career move! I hope it brings nothing but good things to you!
