Thriving in a Gig Economy

I think I was gigging before it was a "thing." I have had the opportunity to work with SO MANY different people, encounter so many different corporate cultures with all the freelancing I have done in the past 12-15 years. And it's been FUN. I think the biggest drawback (besides slogging through tax season) is that I have to reign myself in at new gigs. I have a million, "OH! I did once worked on that kind of [project/photo shoot/ talent aquisition project/ photoshop challenge]" stories but I imagine I can get annoying. I have literally been there, done that in many different scenarios.

Maybe it's watching The Office series one too many times with my teen-aged kids but sometimes, I find myelf wishing I had a 9 to 5 job. I like break-neck speed projects and marketing campaigns with open-ended creativity but I also like a routine. I remember waiting to have coffee until I got into the office way back when I worked a regular 9 to 5. However, I have been so lucky in this "gig economy." One of my other challenges? Keeping up with this blog. I feel like I have to hang on to this antique from another era because I park my social media portfolio here. I dont' even bother posting my AM Northwest live appearances here any more because they are kind enough to invite me back as a guest so often. I know my segments are out there in the internet ether if someone really wants to look. 

So, if you have stopped here after checking out my social media portfolio, just give me a call. I can fill you in on the details of the many job experiences I have under my belt. In short, I enjoy working, I am fun to work with, I have a lot of creative energy and I think I am ready to settle into an office environment. Maybe.
