One Day :: I Dream of Working for Myself by Freya

Welcome to a new series here on Nishaantishu called One Day, all about hopes and dreams for the future, and bringing those dreams to life. 

We all have dreams, often they change as we get older and solidify into something which represents more who we are - who we are becoming. They break apart and fragment into achievable steps, and we find ourselves walking along a path towards making those dreams a reality. 

One day I dream of being my own boss. I love my job and it's perfect for me for now, but I think as time goes on I'll want to break out on my own.

In the future I see myself living in some other country, with Adam, Molly and, well, who knows.... and I see myself running my own business. As social media is something I do pretty much non-stop now, I'll work part time as a digital storytelling consultant: helping to bring brands to life through design, film, photography and social multi-platform strategy. 

I would like to work on my photography more and see where that takes me, and I also think I may like to explore the idea of opening an online retail business. This last one needs more thought, but as I was designing my wedding dress I realised "hey, I'm not too bad at this!" - who knows, maybe I'll start designing and selling wedding dresses. Crazier things have happened.

Most of these ideas are still in their early stages. Adam and I have talked about moving a lot, and I'm working towards making things happen: building up my skills, portfolio and contacts, and working towards making some of these dreams into a reality.
