If you’re like I was when I got my first “real” job after college, you hate having a “real” job. You find yourself considering taking up smoking for the breaks. You find yourself making coffee you don’t need and then cleaning the filter meticulously because it gives you something to do. You find yourself taking more bathroom breaks than you need so you can say over and over in your head, I’ve got to get out of here, I’ve got to get out of here as you walk the most labyrinthine route imaginable at the pace of a geriatric with osteoporosis.
If that’s you and you want to apply your marketable skill to freelancing, don’t do it. Not yet, at least. Do these things first.
