I recently went on a social media cleanse that caused me to purge most of the connections I’ve made. Here’s why I did it.
I love to pay the kindness I have received forward by helping out new freelancers. But the hard part is ruining their idea of what freelance life actually is.
“Well, a job isn’t stable, either. Freelancing is much more stable than working for someone else.” I hate when people say that. Let me tell you why.
I love a new year. It’s all about clean slates and possibilities. Anything could happen. This could be the year everything changes and gets a million percent better. It could be the year everything clicks. It could be the first day of the rest of your life. I truly believe that it’s possible to just get better and better every year. . . even if it’s just in teeny tiny increments.
As I look back on my years of freelancing, I’m super proud of what I’ve done and how far I’ve come. I’ve also noticed some patterns and missteps I wished I had avoided. There have been times I could have made some really big moves. . . if only I would have had the foresight to get the hell out of my own way.
