08/08/08 – Auspicious day to start my new Web Copywriting business!

7 August 2008:
It’s almost 08/08/08… my very last day working for Coffs Harbour City Council and the official start of my new Content Writer business.

True, I have been writing content and creating websites ‘on the side’ ever since I learned to hand-code HTML back in 1999.

But this is the first time I’m going to be doing this officially as part of our own company (Triple W Communications) and fulltime!

Having spent 8 years in South-East Asia, I’m very aware that 08/08/08 is considered an incredibly auspicious date. So my business will be a great success!

I am a positive person and I just know there will be enough work and I will love working from home and having more flexibility and time to enjoy beautiful, subtropical Coffs Harbour.

New Content Writer website launched December 2007

I created the first version of my Content Writer website in December 2007 and put it online to ‘test the market’ and work on my search engine rankings.

The website resulted in plenty of enquiries and projects so I quit my day job around six months later and officially started working as a full-time freelance web copywriter and consultant in August 2008.

This blog post is just a reminder of how and when it all began. I don’t plan on going back to working for a boss (other than myself) ever.
