The Business of Being Self Employed

As an artist and designer. What madness is this?

Being both is tough, a juggle and can be an absolute struggle to squeeze every last creative drop into your day. A recipe for disaster some would say.

I can freely do what I please and practice what I do best. I can search and target my specific audience instead of trying hard to fit into a particular mold. Echos of "Don't spread yourself so thin" hang in the air.

To hell with that.

That's all very well to be flippant but with that commitment comes the work, the importance of keeping things fresh for my audience, for me and my ability to challenge myself, innovate and create new things.

How do you find it?
