I got an Upwork job proposal

Today I started the day with a surprise. I got an invitation to an Upwork job, someone read my profile and thinks I’m fit for a Swiss advertising bureau, project management. WAU..

First I thought of declining right away, but on the other hand, why not?

At vove er at tabe fodfæste en kort stund. Ikke at vove er at tabe sig selv

In English:

To dare is to lose footing for a short moment. Not to dare is to lose oneself.

Søren Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher, 1849

I had to remind me of this sentence, and i might loose my footing but what do I have to lose, i could only win on it. And learn. And get paid, not to forget, and Swiss people are normally rather trustworthy, so I jumped and wrote my Coverletter!

Now I can only wait, they sent out to 15 and the right person has to speak German, which is a plus for me. German is my best second language nowadays, as my spouse is German.

I’ll wait, I might loose footing but I’m surely not going to fall!
