currently readingThis book is great for any young professional but it is especially helpful in this period of my life.
Being a 23-year-old on the brink of graduating, there are a few routes I can choose: corporate, boutique firm, agency or self-employed. I never really took the last option seriously because, well, I have absolutely no idea what I am doing. What I like about this book is that the author, Michelle Goodman, explains that you don't HAVE to know what you are doing... you just gotta be good at faking it!
A lot of life is trial and error so I like that her perspective is from someone in my own age group who gave up her cubicle for pajamas and work in bed. Goodman explains the stresses and triumphs of living a freelance life and she really makes us think whether or not we are truly happy in our 9-5 (or 5-9) job. There are, of course, positives and negatives but the book is a great read and I recommend it for anyone at a crossroad... but then again, when are we NOT at a crossroad in life?
Go on now, and live your so-called freelance life!
