The hardest thing I have ever done was have a baby. The second hardest thing was make the jump from working for a boss, to going freelance. The third hardest thing has been to go from freelance to actually employing people, opening offices and growing a business.
|Goodbye old office! PS: Brendah and I, and our significant others had just carried all the furniture down two flights of stairs and mopped the floors, so forgive the tussled hair and flushed cheeks.|
Our old office was basically an open loft space in an office block just off Witkoppen in Fourways. It was right behind the Baron, and we had more than a few meetings there because even though we were proud that we had offices, they weren't much to look at. We could barely fit our desks in!
We also had an office goose that we called Turducken. He was fun for about 5 minutes. The remaining 11 months and 29 days, he would stare into our window with his bright orange eye - just the one - and poop on our balcony.
Our new office space is a huge improvement - not much bigger but more... fitting with what I am hoping we will grow into over the coming months. I'm in charge of Client Service, Sales and Marketing, you see. Which is a big challenge because as you all know, I'm a writer. That is all I have ever been, until Content Candy sprouted wings and took off like a mother-flippen rocketship! Now I am so busy working with our lovely clients that I hardly have time to write at all. Except here on this blog; my safe space.
I won't post pics of our new office space yet, because frankly, it still looks like your very first apartment after you move out of your parents' house. You know, with a whole bunch of mismatched furniture crammed in! As soon as our signage is up and the décor fairy gives our new space the old bibbity-bobbity-boo I will share some photos of our new space.
