Having been an advertising designer who worked for other companies for years, it was always my dream to work from home and be my own boss. I’m proud to say I finally achieved that dream a little over 4 years ago. It wasn’t easy, and it took time to build a good clientele. I love what I do, and not having to commute (especially during bad weather!) or ‘dress up’ makes it even better. I’m perfectly happy to work by myself every day.
