It’s all about flexibility

I’m changing my opening hours; Real Owl’s no longer open 10am - 5pm. Why?

Firstly, I’m a freelancer, my own boss, one of the perks being that, I can work when I want. In my experience, working when inspiration hits is not only when I’m most productive, but also when I get my best results, quickly...

I do, however, need to be available for my clients, to check emails, attend meetings and for arranged calls/collaborative work.

Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fri
8am to 6pm

Saturday (when pre-arranged/agreed)
for time sensitive projects.

What about Wednesdays? This brings me to my second reason.

Self improvement - The world of web design is always changing, there’s always something new to learn. I’ve decided to take a day to improve myself and, by extension, your websites.

What if you need me? I’ll be around in case of emergency, but otherwise I’ll pick up all Wednesday’s emails first thing Thursday morning.

10-5 is out the window, it’s all about flexibility!

Real Owl doesn't "open", I'm available.
