The Darkest Hour
The onset of the pandemic and the dark days that followed left my once-thriving business reeling. Client projects dried up, revenues dwindled, and uncertainty loomed large. Faced with the need to support myself , I reluctantly accepted a position at a social media agency. Though the job provided stability, it left me yearning for the autonomy and passion that had fueled my entrepreneurial journey and my freelance journey.
