This month marks the start of an exciting new chapter! (and also the first post on here for almost two years!)
After over four 1/2 years of working for various digital marketing agencies based in the North West, I’ve decided to pack in my full-time job as the head of SEO for an agency based in Manchester and work for myself.
Working for myself is something that I have always wanted to do, and was something that I was extremely passionate about in my early teens however it’s something that I lost focus of after leaving high-school. Education wasn’t for me and having dropped out of 6th form and sequentially college, I made a swift move to find security with a regular income by joining my first agency in 2010.
I’m extremely thankful for having the opportunities which I have captured over the past 4 years, and working for the three agencies has given me many qualities that I wouldn’t succeed without today.
The past few years have certainly been a rollercoaster (with many highs at Webtise) however as of late, I feel surrounded in negativity whilst also reaching a stage where I’m not taking away any further skills or knowledge from working at an agency (that I couldn’t develop further by working for myself anyway).
I’m managed to land a-lot of opportunities to pursue over recent months, putting me in a great position today to finally make the leap back to what I have always wanted to ultimately do; work full-time for myself.
Outside of work, it’s been a really busy/crazy month too. I split up with my girlfriend of 4 years, became a godparent, and am due to move house later this month. Onwards and upwards, as they say!
