After thirty years in the business, I have decided to “retire” from being an architect to pursue a career as a freelance writer. I am well aware that this choice might not be the most logical one I have ever made in my life—architecture is certainly a much more stable occupation and pays better than writing—but this decision sure makes me feel very happy! Those of you who know me well, know that I have been contemplating this change for several years, now.
I am currently in the process of writing up a four-part business plan that includes one section for each freelance opportunity I intend to pursue: teaching/leading workshops, book coaching, editing, freelance/business writing/editing. I will be updating my website shortly to provide more information about these branches of my new business and then I’ll work hard to try to make this happen. I’m looking forward to this new adventure!
