I can't remember if it was @Dann Petty or @Noah Stokes on Twitter but one of them was talking about how stress escalates higher as you go from employed, to freelance, to business owner. Add a growing family to the latter and it's a huge amount of responsibility on one person.
I've been self-employed since early 2009 (remember those fun economic times?) and have completed over 200 projects since then. I'm very proud of my career, especially considering my childhood was anything but techy.
For those who don't know, my wife and I are expecting our 2nd baby this year. We have a 3-year-old already and, to be perfectly honest, it's not easy supporting us on a single income. I work 80 - 90 hours every week and can't remember the last time we had a vacation.
Ultimately, I dream of living off passive income through sources like Creative Market and other side projects but that's not an easy leap to make when your family is relying on you. Instead, I've been searching more seriously for a full-time, remote job.
I overhauled my business site, which doubles as my portfolio, and updated it with recent work. If anyone has any job leads, I would be incredibly thankful if you kept me in mind.
