In an unexpected turn of events, I’m being recruited for a corporate position. I’d be good at it, the money is good, I’d learn a lot, and it wouldn’t be very personally fulfilling. But I’d be able to finish paying off grad school loans shortly and it would offer a lot of stability.
Or I could keep doing what I’m doing now, taking on the challenging if not impossible projects I’m collecting now and helping people who don’t otherwise have access to the professional services I offer. It’s a lot of risk, and a lot of freedom.
Not totally sure what to do yet.
