On the 30th of September 2014, I finished my last day in the Corporate Work World. It was a day of mixed emotions – relief, excitement, uncertainty, sentimentality and happiness. The most interesting emotion I experienced was the feeling of a large weight being lifted off my shoulders. That night one could say I was a little shell-shocked.
I am grateful for all the experience and friendships that I made while working at Ouch! a touch of technology. The number one thing that I learned is that I am not happy in a Corporate World, that I need flexibility, a relaxed atmosphere and to be my own boss running my own projects that I am passionate about.
I also realized that I need a work that deals more with people, but doesn’t require me to be social with them for long periods of time. Thanks to a brain-profile test ( NBI Profile ), I found that my Empathy preference was the strongest by far, even though my Social preference was the lowest. The runner up preferences were Organizing, Realist and Imagineer.
This has lead to me starting my new job as a Web Developer and Content Writer at WebworxX, which is my husband’s business. It will involve more writing, but will also keep me in the programming field which I studied. It will involve more people interactions, and I am considering getting involved in Social Media Management too.
Yesterday I set up my office space at WebworxX. It is simple, but it is mine and I can do with it how I wish.
And that is the news from my side. I hope that this is the beginning of a more regular blogging from me!
