From The Ashes

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 30, 2014, 6:48 AM

It’s no secret that the past few months have completely altered my life, tested my mettle as well as my faith, and pulled me into a lull that many years of LOA has trained me to confront head on.

I recall the time when a very good friend went through the exact same situation – losing his job and struggling to find employment. I used to tell him that it’s fate’s way of creating a better life. For you can only build a better way of living after the old one has been torn down to it’s foundations. I’ve kept this theory at the forefront of my mind as I’ve spent the last couple of months endlessly applying for jobs, and sending out my CV and portfolio to every design agency in the North West. Yet whilst I’ve been pouring over the numerous job sites, I’ve still had requests from people for various bits of work.

I’m not sure at what point the epiphany clicked into place, but suddenly I realised that rather than struggling to find an opportunity to make someone else’s dreams come true, I had a a perfect opportunity to make my own dream a realisation.

I sit here at my own fully equipped home office, completely capable of providing freelance graphic design and illustration to anyone. So why not take the time of applying for jobs and use it to search for clients instead.

The bizarre thing is, the second I made the decision to go self-employed, a great dark veil seemed to lift from me. The frustration of unemployed appeared to just blow away, and those closest to me have noticed my sudden happiness. It’s because of this I know I am on the correct path.

I’m under no illusions that this won’t be tough – I’m fully prepared to work my absolute ass of to make this work.

So now I had the decision, all I needed now was to create my business. After much thinking and tinkering it seemed only right to name it after my obsession with Phoenixes. So here you go – Phoenix Designs.

www.phoenixdesigns.uk.com

The website is far from perfect and needs lots of examples on there. But I’ll get there eventually. :)Time to make this dream a reality! :D
