When I started lightweight last November, I was really excited but also nervous, of course. Before I made my decision, I had a lot to think about and a lot of decisions to make. How could I use the knowledge and experience I had gained in the past, and above all; how could I make myself more successful and find new clients? I also had to do the calculations and decide on the hourly rate and make a business plan.

It all started through a series of coincidences.

Last autumn, I mentioned to my current colleague that I was doing some marketing for a clothing company on their Facebook and Instagram pages, and also went to the store to do some decoration. He asked me if I would like to do similar work with him, as his workplace needed a social media person like me. The company didn’t have a regular social media manager yet, even though they desperately needed one. He also mentioned that he was a light entrepreneur and that he invoiced his client through a billing company. After careful consideration, I contacted one of my current clients. We agreed on a monthly number of hours, an hourly rate and my job description. Since 1 November 2017, I have been doing some marketing on the company’s Facebook and Instagram pages, sending newsletters to clients 1-3 times a month and maintaining the website.

In January 2018, I posted a CV on my website about my current job description, looking for new employers. To be honest, I was a bit sceptical about CV-net, but to no avail, as I received a promising job offer that fitted my job description perfectly. As a result, here I am, writing this blog post.
