Just over a month ago, I decided to accept a full-time position as a technical project manager in a new city. My family and I packed up our house and moved to start a new adventure. This was the first time I would be working in an actual office in almost 5 years, so it was a bit of an adjustment.
After a few weeks of working, it grew apparent that I would no longer have the time to have a healthy work/life balance if I were to continue doing freelance work on the side. I actually did the math, and numerically, there really weren’t enough hours in the day. So I’ve decided to hang up my freelance gloves unless I ever need to pick it back up for financial reasons.
I’ll still try to keep up on mobile technology and write blog posts and tutorials when I have time, but I will no longer be accepting new clients or projects. It’s been a fun decade of always having freelance projects going on the side, but for now, I think I’m just going to focus on one job and my family.
