Today is our first official, full time day in business, as Jester Creative. Okay, so our web site is still under construction, our office is a shambles, but we have projects, more projects than we know what to do with, and somehow we need to balance making progress on the projects with renovations, a new web site, drumming up new business, and oh, yah, maybe spending some time with our families too.
To some, this may seem pretty daunting. I admit, at times (usually 3am) it is. But given the choice between this and getting up every morning, trudging to some grey office, to do work so someone else can make a profit, I’d take the daunting task any day. Working for someone else no longer appeals to me. To be honest, I don’t think it ever really did. Sure, I have worked on a lot of really cool, groundbreaking stuff in my career so far. And if I hadn’t had those experiences, I certainly would have never built the network of contacts or gotten the experience I needed to be where I am at today.
So, I guess this post is a recognition in a way. A recognition of all of the people, jobs, events, and life experiences that, over the past 36 years of my life, have contributed to this moment.
It really is the first day of the rest of my life.
