Fluff-free insight on freelancing, juggling all your creative side projects, & staying (semi)organized in the process
Freelancing often feels like herding cats while simultaneously playing drunken hopscotch. If you’re one of those mythical multi-passionate types, it can be even harder – because you’re doing all of that on top of eking out times for other side projects to stabilize your income (or just provide a much-needed creative outlet).
I don’t have all the answers (spoiler alert: nobody does, & if they tell you differently they’re selling something) but I do have damn near ten years of experience freelancing, much of it chronicled here.
