After more than half a year of doing my own thing, I’m giving agency life another go. Starting next week, I’ll be back working in public relations full-time.
During my time freelancing, I always kept my options open, and an opportunity came up that seems like it will be a good fit.
Do I feel any trepidation? Truthfully, I still feel a mild sting due to my experiences at the last agency, so my my biggest concern is that we all work together well at the new place. But I hope to take my many lessons from my past work life and apply them to the new job.
Will it be hard going back to a regular work routine? A little, but I did spend a lot of time in the past eight months exploring my skills in writing, public relations, marketing and branding. I also got to spend plenty of time with my pup, play capoeira a lot, study Portuguese and travel to Brazil, Canada, New York, Big Sur and Mendocino.
I’ll squeeze the last bits of free time that I have this weekend and take advantage of the ample sunshine and warmth, for Monday, it’s a new job and the beginning of a new story.
Wish me luck!
