Hey Tom. I really enjoy candid reflections like these about the life of a freelancer. I’ve been doing it for 17 years and every time I read something like this I still find a piece of new wisdom to integrate into my solo business. Thanks for sharing your lessons learned. Every point you made completely resonates with my own freelance experience and echoes the lessons I try to teach younger freelancers and designers. You seem very clued in for someone who’s only freelanced for 6 months. I’ve got no doubt you’ll have a long and successful career at it.
