Does this sound like you?
You became a freelance web or graphic designer because you craved freedom, wanted to spend more time with your family, and you love working from the comfort of your bed. I mean, workspace. *Cough cough*
There’s just one problem...
Working for yourself is stressful.
Your clients are late providing you with EVERYTHING, from the files you need so you can start their project, to the feedback you need on each design.
When you eventually receive your client’s feedback, it’s one vague sentence that doesn’t help you at all.
Your projects finish, but your clients are still emailing you with millions of questions.
And getting them to pay you on time is like tearing yourself away from a 4-hour binge session of This Is Us: not going to happen. *That show is awesome.*
Do you sometimes wonder if it would be easier to get a day job? Leave all the payment-chasing and following-up to someone else and just collect your payslip at the end of each month?
I know you sometimes think about that because I used to think about it too.
