Be honest: what brought you here?

The reason you got into your creative field was that you are passionate about the art. But by now you’ve realized that being a successful creative involves much more than the actual creating.

It’s time to face the facts.

You are not a freelancer. Stop thinking of yourself as a hired gun paid by the hour. You’re not just the person who makes things. You know you do way more than that, and it’s time you start acting like it.

You are a business.

It’s time you start to think of yourself as an independent business owner who manages overhead, profit margins, and other people. Snap out of the freelancer mindset and see what you’re really capable of.
