In the winter of 2010, my career took a shift for the better. For nearly ten years I had had a career as a freelance web developer. As such, I accepted all sorts of work, from small business websites to enterprise level projects all the way through to online brochures and single page portals. No job was too big, no job was too small. But all the jobs had something in common: I had to manage and deal with the entire project from start to finish. I handled PR, sales, invoicing, development, timelines, client interface, and implementation. All this required bottomless cups of coffee, a touch of hope, and a lot of self-discipline.
Personality types. What is yours? We live in a world where sorting and categorizing is commonplace, and that includes sorting people according to different characteristics or personalities.
Friends and coworkers typically infer that I am a fairly private person. People of my personality type generally keep away from the individual spotlight whenever possible due to self-confidence issues. In fact, the thought of contributing an article for our company blog makes me about as nervous as dancing with a national-championship competitive dancer. But wait, since I’ve already done the latter—and excelled—perhaps this can provide some encouragement to other background people.
