Losing My Job

October 14th, 2020 at 04:19 pm

Sadness. Frown

The design company I have worked for over the last  8 years is dissolving and my clients and I have been transferred to a new owner. I'm pretty sad about it. I think I will continue getting my tiny monthly maintenance payments (like $125) but I doubt I will receive any new clients. I am also losing a lot of the free subscriptions I have been using all these years such as Photoshop, my email, etc. If I were to purchase all the things on my own it would cost well over $100 a month, therefore cancelling any income. But not having the subscriptions will affect my personal clients, and also my own projects. Sigh. 

Thankfully I didn't depend on that income and have just used it for debt pay down. I am mostly sad about now being responsible for paying for all my programs, and because my boss was awesome and I will miss him. I usually fly to his house once a year and visit with his family. Hopefully we can stay in touch.

Now I have to decide if I want to try to branch out and go back to freelancing, look for a new employer, or if I am going to take a bit of a hiatus because of Covid and my new baby.

The other design partner I have worked with has been giving me a little work lately. So I have that to keep my busy for now.

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. It's good that you don't have to rely on that job, but still it was clear how much you enjoy it. Best of luck finding something.

    That's rough. Even though you don't depend upon it for income, it sounds like there were aspects of it that you liked and were helpful to you.

    Sorry for the job loss. Maybe if you contact them about the subscriptions they’ll extend the same access to you?
