"If you want loyal freelancers who do their best work for you, who prioritize you, who invest in your work...you need to invest in them."
It started out so well! But then, this type of thing often does. I met with a prospective client who wanted to start working with me. It was potentially a long-term gig; nothing I was in love with, but vaguely interesting. He communicated so much enthusiasm for my work, was

"To gain your own voice, you have to forget about having it heard.”

Can you relate?
As freelancers, we create on demand. We’re given a project or a brand and a budget, and our client sends us off to to come up with something brilliant. Since we’re not creating just for kicks and giggles, we need to understand how creativity works -- the process

"YOU are strong enough to take criticism and use the most helpful parts of it to improve and thrive… all you have to do is seek it out!"
So you’ve finally finished that passion project! Hours of tears, blood, and sweat, and there she is… your baby novel, or painting, or website. At first, you’re so proud - but then the self-doubt starts to creep in. Is it silly? Is it poorly made? Is it embarrassing

"It’s not that I don’t like people or even that I’m shy. I just don’t want to spend my day talking. I like the solo, work-all-day-with-my-earphones-on kind of job."

"Do art and do it for the rest of your lives."
As freelancers who often create on demand, we thought that you'd appreciate this letter by Kurt Vonnegut, which has been making the rounds on Reddit today. It was written by Vonnegut in 2006 to a group of high school students who asked him to come to their school. He passed

Before you invest yourself in a creative project, ensure it’s going to be valuable and fulfilling:
When you have a creative spark, it’s easy to run with it and get carried away. Unfortunately, not all creative ideas are created equal. When you have a creative desire, it’s important to know how to determine whether or not it’s a worthy pursuit. Next time you’
