"I've had enough. I freaking quit."

Not the best way to start a business, but it is kind of how it started. You see, I was offered a great position at a well-respected SEO firm that I couldn't say no to. Before going to this 'dream' job, I had a great position at an award-winning digital agency that I loved, and still love. But, the opportunities that I thought I'd have by going to work for a company that was (pretty much) strictly SEO were too hard to say 'no' to.

My expectations were quickly dashed and I bet the expectations certain people had for me were different than what I had to offer. At the end of the day I became increasingly unhappy and uncomfortable there, so I did us both a favor and flat out quit. Then, it was off to freelance land and incredible happiness with my own business, Untypical Marketing! Not so fast, I think I've made a terrible mistake.

"I'm lying. Sort of."

Untypical wasn't 'born' when I quit my job, it had been around for a while. It wasn't until I was jobless that I started to actively pursue a list of regular clients.

 

"Things take off."

Although momentum was slow at first, things started to take off. Clients were thrilled, referring me to others, new projects would come in regularly -- sometimes too many and I'd have to refer them out to friends in the industry. In a year I went from no job/no income to being quite comfortable in regard to the amount and frequency of work.
