The first time I left my job it was to move to the UK. At times it actually felt like the whole world was tumbling around me when I first moved. I had to give up my job, my apartment, and the city I lived in. It was also a long road of understanding the UK market, connecting with the Etsy team here in Glasgow, and trying to figure out how to grow my business in a new country. Needless to say, there was a lot going on. When the opportunity came to work with my old company and gain some sense of stability I jumped at the opportunity.
The problem was that the Fuzzy Bee had started to do really well. In reality, I too had actually started to do really well, although I couldn't see that a the time. My new job, over the course of a year, totally swamped me and I was constantly having an internal struggle of trying to give 100% of myself to both the full-time job and The Fuzzy Bee. So after a lot of crying (yes it was bad) and some freaking out, I decided I can totally do this! It is with great pleasure that I can announce to the world, I AM FREE: THE SEQUEL!
As a result of my new found freedom, there are a lot of really fun projects I have on the horizon.
