In-house Interpersonal: Walking Out of the House

Dream of working for yourself?

by Ilise Benun



I speak to a lot of in house designers with dreams of becoming self employed – one day.

If that’s you, check out the Creative Freelancer Blog, where there is a series of posts on making the transition from F/T to F/T freelancer. It covered these questions:


• How to Begin Getting Your Own Clients and Projects

• How to Balance Two Jobs

• When to Make the Leap

If this is something you’re considering, the timing is good. Here are a few steps you can take in that direction:
1. Read this series of blog posts.

2. Listen to this interview with F/T turned freelance designer, Heather Parlato

3. Read “The Freedoms of Freelancing” (send an email to me at for a copy of this white paper)

4. Come to the Creative Freelancer Conference June 23-24, 2011 in Chicago (part of HOW Design Live)
