Even though I really wanted just a bit of stability this year, yet again I’ve experienced that the only reliable factor in my life is my Fiancee. She’s with me no matter what. Supporting me with a God-like patience.
Without going into unpleasent details I’ve decided to cut my business relationship with my previous employer. First 2 months had been almost perfect but the last week turned out in such way that I’ve started to doubt in the future of that particular enterprise. I’ve decided that the fight was not worth losing my health for.
I didnt mind the money – I asked for a rise and I was promised one. That was a test. I knew we will crunch with that project scope. Guy wanted me to sign Non Compete Agreement which I was fine with… but not for the salary of a amateur bartender. I was more worried by the type of contract I was offered to sign. It was not on partner terms, against our previous agreements – basically each month they could tell me – hey, we dont need you here, we won’t pay you as you havent fullfilled the non existing game document requirements and we dont care if you need to pay your corporate taxes and health insurance. They said it was a standard type of contract for their publisher. Well… if this was the truth, I was working for the wrong publisher.
Moreover it turned out that more and more people started to contact me if I could help them with their projects. They wanted to pay for my skills so the Punk inside me said “Dude, you dont have to be a slave… F this S” and so I did. Integrity is the key.
Since I already had a company set up I thought – Lets go full time with this…. and here I am:
