Blossom Media lives: A freelancer by any other name …
I love freelancing. I love walking downstairs in the morning, making a cup of coffee and switching on my computer. I love wearing my pyjamas until noon and listening to my music while I work.
I feel much more peaceful when I work from home. I nap when I’m tired, I make fresh salads for lunch and I walk the dogs when I am itching for a break.
As of June 30, I have been contracting and freelancing for two years. This is a real milestone for me. When I took the leap, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to pay rent, let alone make a decent living.
It turns out that it’s worked wonderfully well.
The next step in this adventure towards living a happier life is creating a name for myself and my freelancer friends.
Our brand is called Blossom Media; part freelancer directory, part events management company, part Creative Communications community.
Why Blossom? The answer is simple: we want to help people’s creative ideas bloom into commercial reality. The dictionary puts it beautifully: ‘The state of flowering;to flourish, develop, open’.
I want us all to live juicier, more joyful lives and for me, that means freedom, independence and creativity. This quote sums it up nicely: ‘The best way to predict the future is to create it.’
What is your employment dream? What would make you leap out of bed in the morning?
