When I quit my comfortable and structured job at a software house in Krakow, I almost immediately went on freelancing. Of course I had some savings to live on, but why do that if there’s work literally knocking at your door, right? Also, why not, if everyone around seems to be boasting about their 100-hour weeks and how they “hustle” and how they are totally on track to get to a million dollars before 30?
This is a personal story. If you at any point feel like it is oddly familiar, please talk to someone. Preferably with a professional. You might not feel like you have to, but believe me - you should. Even if just to make sure. Ready? Let's go.

About Daniel Grant
Wesbite engineer @lostmynameHQ.
I first started freelancing for the same reasons that many do. Freedom to travel, more time for hobbies, choosing my own hours etcetera, etcetera.¶5 years into it I realised I was at my desk more than I was away from it, I couldn’t ‘find the time’ for a 1 week holiday and my beloved piano was gathering dust in the corner of my dining room.
