I am not a freelancer. But I’ve thought about it a lot; what it would mean and how it might fit into my life now. I’m really happy with my current position but I do often take work home so the whole thought of keeping time to recharge along with regular work and freelancing work is overwhelming. Besides which, though I don’t believe I’m a perfectionist, I do really appreciate the time and space to practice on all the aspects of design because I’m always looking to get better.

I really like to be able to know, whenever I go into an interview situation, that I’m not just some mediocre instructional designer. I’m damn good and I’m working to get better. So for this week’s Elearning Heroes Challenge, I posterized this great tip using a free Photoshop poster mockup. ‘Cause, hey, I don’t do boring.
