Freelancing full time, in my opinion, is one of the most awesome, and yet, incredibly scary things you can do in your career. There are busy seasons…. and not-so-busy seasons.I’ve actually never had a “normal” job. My first job was at a salon, and after branching out from salon life, I started my business and have been freelancing for almost 4 years. Thankfully, when I started, I was living at home with my parents, and could give it my best shot without too many risks.“ENJOY EVERY SEASON”
That’s my mantra this year.It’s easy to get discouraged when business is slow, but I HAVE to remember to tell myself – this season won’t last forever. I pull a lot of 80+ hour work weeks in my crazy schedule. Especially working in film and television, that’s the norm. But I also have times where, during the week, I’m completely free.
No season is going to last forever. I CHOOSE to enjoy the busy times, and I also choose to enjoy the slower free time, and ability to take a mini vaca or invest in myself. I have weddings booked every weekend this month, but next week while I’m off, I’m taking a little trip to Miami. Just because I can. Because I want to take full advantage of right here and right now. Be encouraged and know that enjoying your life, forgetting the pros and cons, will be fulfilling and a whole lot less stressful. 😉
