I came to that point a few years ago that while freelancing brings great projects my way, far too many ask for free work. And some offer you little pay for more work. There are days I miss sleeping in till noon, but I now have steady income, i’m not getting rejected (unless it’s for a date), and nobody is asking for last minute help on their urgent project at 9 p.m. the night before.
You are amazingly talented, and you have Ryan by your side. I have done silly projects with you, gone to random events with you, and had some good laughs. We’re all human, and sometimes it’s more about you than it is about the hustle.
