Wow, this is one of those things that just amaze me and I can see how things happen for a reason.
I'm a graphic designer, and as such have always used a Mac computer at work with specialized graphic software such as InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
I was laid off in February and the job market stinks so getting a job is very difficult right now. My husband and I have been thinking (and some friends have told me) that it might be a good idea to freelance from home. The problem: the package of software listed above is $1,300. Obviously, we don't have that kind of money, but have been debating whether we should bite the bullet and just get it. Although I only have a PC at home, it would work.
Yesterday, I get a call from a guy that worked on our Macs at my last job (I'll call XXX), and XXX had contacted him after I was laid off and gave him my old Mac computer for recycling. He called and asked if I would like to have it and it has all the software I would need to freelance from home.
Isn't that amazing? One door closes, another opens.
Anyone else have a "things happen for a reason" story?
