"I always wondered how I would manage to be an intentional and involved mom to multiple kids while also sustaining a job (and doing it well) at the same time. Don't Panic has made it possible. Joining the team of freelancers has given me the freedom in my schedule that I had been craving for years. I am able to work at hours that work best for my schedule—I wake up and work before my family is even awake and then enjoy my afternoons by hiking or going to the beach and making memories with my kids. It is truly the best of both worlds.
Plus, I can thrive professionally. Working with multiple clients, I am constantly learning new skills and my training is always growing. Having the support of the Don't Panic team gives me confidence that I will be able to do any job well.

You don’t mind ghostwriting or answering emails under a generic “admin” email account. You won’t always get the credit for your work, but you don’t mind. Working behind the scenes is what you do.
You consider the people you work with to be your friends. You know their significant other by name, how many kids and pets they have, and whether or not they’re all caught up on the latest season of Game of Thrones.
There’s no job too small for you, and you’re not afraid to take initiative to get the work done. Little tasks like making a lunch reservation or rewriting the copy in your blog intro don’t annoy you. In fact, you like them. In your mind, it’s all in a day’s work!
No one needs to review your work before you send it to a client because you always check and recheck what you’ve done. You always catch the typos from your first draft of social media posts or the missing cut in your podcast’s audio. Some people might call you a perfectionist… and some people would be right.
You get wind of someone doing a super stellar job on a project or assignment, so you let them know and lift them up! “Our client said you have been so helpful in taking initiative on that weekend conference. That is freaking awesome, and I see you out there killing it!”
Your whole life people have said you have a curious mind. You’re known for the size of your bookshelf, the blog tabs you keep open, and how frequently you say, “Let me Google it.” Your podcast queue is never-ending, and people always laugh about how you seem to know just a little bit about everything.
