The terrible twos is a stage in which toddlers begin to be more independent, restless and sometimes, for their parents, this phase can sometimes be quite hard. This is why this stage is called “the terrible twos”. In my case, I am not a mom, but this is my second year working as a freelance translator in the UK, and like some parents with two-year-olds babies, at some stages, it has been a tough year.
Last month, my business turned two years old, after a first year full of learning, accomplishments and failures (you can read here my thoughts on my first year as a freelance translator in the UK).
After that first year, I had quite a lot of work (which was amazing), with so many good opportunities, I and learned a lot, I had my ups downs (but, who hasn’t?) and I was determined to keep growing as a professional. So, just like parents who had survived the first year of their babies, I thought things will start to calm down (although I knew I had to keep learning a lot and falling), but nothing could be further from the truth.
