What's Next

Sunday, February 01, 2009

About a year ago, I quit my job at a national women’s magazine to go work for a small consulting company working with nonprofit organizations. I spent a year learning a lot and being very inspired by the organizations with which I worked. However, it ultimately didn’t work out. (I also suspect that in the current economic climate I wasn’t likely to have my job for much longer anyway.)

So, as of last week, I am working freelance. I am not entirely sure what that means right now, but I have some exciting (but small) projects lined up, and I am looking for more. To start, I’ll also be spending a week working backstage on a major theater production being mounted here in Brooklyn. It’s been a long time since I worked in the theater, and I am thrilled to have a chance to return to it. This is an exciting and nerve-wracking time for me all around, but it also means I have more time on my hands to figure out what’s next. 2009 promises to be a year of change.

Good luck. I am sure things will work out. I have been pondering a similar situation: should I stay in a work situation that makes me unhappy? It takes a lot of courage to make a leap into the unknown
