New perspectives as an independent creative

How quitting my full-time job and starting a new company literally led me to the top of a mountain.

Here’s 6 things I’ve observed so far:

1. Money isn’t everything.

2. I hate selling myself.

3. Being selective is the ultimate autonomy.

4. I feel healthier.

5. Finances suck.

6. I feel like I’m a part of something bigger.
