Web Design » Time for a fresh start…

Date published: April 18, 2013 at 9:42 am

I thought it was about time that I’d freshen up my website. I’ve been in the same routine for years, not updating my website or actively looking for clients.

The change

The first change was my attitude towards looking for work! I mean, I am employed full time, but this job has nothing to do with my real passions…WEB DESIGN.

After a few people reached out to me to build them a website, I’ve decided to take it more serious as a possible career path rather than a hobby. If I had stuck to my dream when I was in college, I would most like have a web design agency under my belt and be pretty well off. But I didn’t.

The solution

First of all, NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAM! I shouldn’t have done this in the first place. I’ve changed my attitude and will now actively seek clients to build up my portfolio.

The thing is, where I live (Kawerau, New Zealand), I feel like I’m the only one with these skills, which gives me a great start. I will need to do my research on the current businesses here, and also the new ones that will/have opened up recently.
