For all of my fellow self employed/freelancing boss babes out there, can we take a moment to acknowledge how freakin hard it is? I say this with a grain of salt because, while challenging as it has been, it has also given me incredible amounts of creative, personal, and professional freedom.
I have always marched to the beat of my own drum --go ahead, ask my mom-- but there was something so liberating about being the one to call the shots, set my own schedule and head into my office at The Wing whenever I felt like it, and ultimately decide what direction I wanted to take my work.
..... but to be honest, the transition away from a salaried position to projected based pay was a real adjustment, especially when you live in a very expensive city and have college debt for days (thanks for the memories, not for the loans).
Beyond that, I'm one of those people who actually likes having coworkers. I know, I know, I'm that person. But it's true! Having that support or even just having the option to turn to the person next to you to bounce an idea off of them gives me so much comfort in this world of uncertainty.
Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to start doing some work with Nicole Riccardo, a flutist, entrepreneur, digital marketer, and total genius based in Austin, TX. We clicked right away and were able to recognize not only each other's strengths, but how our own professional paths complimented each other; it only made sense to work together!
About 6 months ago Nicole asked if I wanted to do this thing for real and be her right hand lady -- my answer? Abso-freakin-lutely!! Why work alone when you can combine your strengths to make something even better and reach a greater audience?
Next: enter Jolene Madewell. Not only are we all flutists, but Jolene is an incredible self taught Graphic Designer and color coordinating genius.
Thus the dream team was formed.
I am so ecstatic to share that all of my work is exclusively now through Nicole Riccardo Media (or NR Media for short!).
What does this mean? Truthfully, not much has changed it just means that you now have a small but mighty team to give you the best possible service or you might get an invoice from Nicole instead of me directly!
