About how we were one leg in Warsaw

center of Warsaw

Today I will tell you about how we were one leg in Warsaw, i.e. about the unrealized move from Gdańsk to the capital.

When we had a worse time in our lives, because our sources of income shrank significantly, we went through various options. From looking for a full-time job (if you follow a blog, you know that we run a company with Piotr that deals with broadly defined activities in social media. If you are interested please visit our fanpage related to social media marketing).

You need to find a professional path in life that you want to follow and follow it at all costs.

If you are in this stage of your life, consider all options. Such a decision is not easy, but sometimes it is worth the risk rather than being stuck. In addition, money sometime ends (we know something about it) and the debt stage begins, from which it is not so easy and quick to get out. Of course, it's much easier when there are loved ones who will help. Nevertheless, you can not always count on them, and besides this is a vicious circle - indebtedness will be useless. We also know something about this.

Why is it worth running your own business?

Own business is a big comfort - we don't have to leave the house, we have different clients and we decide with whom we will cooperate. Nevertheless, it is not always colorful, because the customer can opt out of further cooperation, and we will not be prepared for it (about the fact that it is worth having savings, a separate post will be created).

At some point, you just have to get a grip and act.

We had a client for whom we implemented two projects. We got involved in our work at 150%, we were able to devote even our time to sleep and not work. It even came to the point that I gave up carrying out another project for this client. After several months of cooperation, for reasons beyond our control, we had to part.

It was a difficult time for us, especially because as I wrote above - we gave up one of the clients for these projects. We began to consider various options for the future. One of them was moving to a place where we could easily find work with our previous experience - to Warsaw.

Do we regret our decision to stay in the Tri-City?

For a certain period of time, we visited Warsaw on average once a week for job interviews. And so it was for over a month. Until we finally fell tired and resigned, but we decided not to give up and continue to do our part (although it was really hard).

No decision is easy, because it carries the risk of failure.

We currently have a wallpaper on the wallpaper that gives us a big, motivational kick to act. You will probably hear about it soon, because we are planning a small storm in the network related to this project. For now, we don't want to reveal the details, let me just say that this is a project related to what women love the most 😉

We do not know what fate will bring us, but we are happy to make the decision to stay in Gdańsk and give even more to realize our dreams.

    "You have to find a professional path in life that you want to follow and follow it at all costs." Very well put, because life is too short to waste it on a job we don't like 🙂 Greetings and good luck!

      Thank you on behalf of myself and Piotr 🙂 There are difficult moments in life, moments of doubt, and even days when you don't see the meaning of life (we have experienced it the hard way). However, we did not give up and continue our path, despite walking for some time 😉

    Fingers crossed! These are very difficult moments and decisions. It's good that you managed to stay here and achieve your goals here.

    I have repeatedly submitted proposals to live permanently in Warsaw, but we never took it seriously, it would be difficult for us to live in a city that we don't really like, the commuting is better. 🙂 And then we decided to work on our own, it was a hit. 🙂

      Self-employment is always the most satisfying. I say this from personal experience 🙂

    I like this approach 🙂 It's worth fighting for dreams, that's why I wish you fulfilled your dreams 🙂

    For me it is probably family but despite many of my personal experiences definitely work for myself doing what you love works best <3

      My father also ran his own business and in retrospect I think it had an impact on the fact that I decided to open it myself. I remember that my father worked a lot, but you can see that he enjoyed it.

      It is the same for me - there are days when we get up in the morning and go to bed late at night, but there is this satisfaction. You do what you like.

    Congratulations on your courage in running your own business. Probably not an easy matter? I wish you all the best, Regards, A.

      As in life, in business - there are good and bad times (I wrote about those bad ones in this post). It certainly requires a lot of work and it is not a job from 8-16, but sometimes you spend a lot more time. However, if you do what you love - time passes quickly (sometimes too fast!) And you always feel motivated to act.

      In technical matters - I have the comfort that Piotr had his business, so he helps me a lot in many matters. I am completely unsuitable for all the paperwork, so my husband does it to me 🙂 It is worth having a support in a loved one, and the second most important person is the accountant (in my case an accountant). Patience, skills and knowledge are essential.

      I had one accountant who did nothing at all, and made a lot of mistakes. Fortunately, I suspended my business, which was the basis for terminating the contract.

    This photo of Warsaw looks quite encouraging despite everything 😉

    There is a lot of risk on your own, but you know - satisfaction and incomparable effects

    • Avatar [Email protected] 21 November 2016 / 09: 29

      Risk is everywhere. With an employment contract, even for an indefinite period, you can be dismissed at any time. When running your own business, you can only blame yourself.

    I have been running my business for 7 for years and only when I closed and got full-time did I relax. I was tired of this concern for papers, everything billed etc. Although now looking for work for a long time I think about it once again.

      Looking at the current job market and offers, I can't imagine returning to a typical full-time job. I love to participate in projects, and it's best to create them from scratch (as we now have the opportunity) 🙂

    own business is primarily 24h / day work, but exactly as you say, you work only on yourself, you choose with whom you will cooperate, you can work from home ... probably more pros than cons 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 21 November 2016 / 09: 34

      Yes it's true. Nevertheless, you do what you love and give you great pleasure (despite fatigue).

    Own business is freedom on the one hand, everything is on our shoulders (from the customer to zusy and others)

    • Avatar [Email protected] 21 November 2016 / 09: 38

      Well, unless you have a husband who had his own business and helps you to get it all :)))

  12. Avatar My Home Rules 20 November 2016 / 08: 28

    A full-time job is not always satisfactory, earnings are usually poor, but at least there is a steady income. On the other hand, if we have our own business, we usually do what we like best, but we also risk more. Sometimes it's better and sometimes worse. Nevertheless, the latter option seems better to me. I keep my fingers crossed for the new project.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 21 November 2016 / 09: 39

      Thank you very much 🙂 There is always a risk - whether running a business (that fails) or working full-time (they can dismiss you at any time despite having a 'secure' employment contract).

      Every decision carries a risk.

    Eh, my own activity, the theme of the river ... After several weeks of work after 15 hours a day, I would probably not be able to write anything positive. But the day after tomorrow I am flying out for a holiday of a lifetime of 40 birthday, so WORTH IT

    • Avatar [Email protected] 18 November 2016 / 08: 28

      At least you know that you work for yourself, not for someone who probably will never appreciate your commitment (I did it myself).

      I can only wish you a pleasant holiday and a happy birthday! Come back home full of positive energy and a desire to continue working (there will definitely be a lot of it) 🙂

    I dream of my own activities and work via the Internet, but for now it remains only in the sphere of dreams: D.
    I lived in Warsaw for 1,5 once and I have a fondness for this city :).

      Dreams must be fulfilled. The most important thing is to eliminate the fear that kills the process of their realization 'and maybe it will not succeed', 'I have a warm job and it can be worse'. As they say - no risk, no fun 🙂
