Going solo

This is the view from where I’m living now.

I’ll explain. A couple of months ago, my partner was offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live and work in Andalusia, doing digital marketing for an organisation that is part retreat centre, part permaculture farm, and part yoga teacher training school. With brexit looming and faced with such a great opportunity to do something very different, we both rapidly left our jobs in the UK, packed up what stuff we didn’t get rid of or put in storage, and moved.

All of which means I’m now working with the organisations here (suryalila.comdanyadara.com and froglotusyogainternational.com ) alongside developing my own consultancy business and working as CTO for ydentity.com (so new we still have lorem ipsum text). I will freely admit that coming off the salary drug is a tough task, but having the freedom to do my own thing, develop my skills and work the hours that I want is proving very satisfying so far.

For the moment, I’m getting involved in a really wide range of work, from project management, tech consultancy, AWS engineering, to digital marketing and analytics, security consultancy and more. The reason for me getting stuck into such a wide range of tasks is so I can really work on evaluating what the most suitable area is for me to focus on in the future, both from a perspective of what I’m good at and enjoy doing, and also what I find there is most demand for in the marketplace.

If you would like to work with me or you’d like to discuss an opportunity for us to collaborate, drop me a line through LinkedIn, email me at tom@tomgeraghty.co.uk or pop in to see me in Andalusia, if you can get past the goats on the highway.
