Today is a day that seemed so far away when I first thought about it: It’s the 10-year anniversary of the beginning of Catena Creations LLC.
Ten years ago, I had just been laid off for the second time in 2008. I was doing freelance work for the first company that had laid me off. The first episode of Bravo’s Tabatha Takes Overwas on that night, and she asked the couple she was helping: What’s your passion?
While laid off, I’d been working at home and taking care of my then-13-year-old-son and getting him ready for school. And watching that show, I realized I wanted to do what I’d been doing since that second layoff: Work at home. Manage my own schedule. Set my own pace. Enjoy a variety of work with more creativity.
It’s amazing to think of all the changes that have taken place in the past decade.
