I had a ‘proper job’ for over 20 years, with a career in IT. Giving up that stability to be a full time content creator was not an easy decision, but was a necessary one to A) pursue a career in an area I love and B) be around to see my children grow up. Running a business as a content creator isn’t necessarily an easy ride. I still have a company to run, staff to manage and pay, accounts to balance, and I end up working longer hours than I ever did in IT. But the rewards for doing that are immense – and being home to see my children grow up is well worth it.
