I’ve recently been taking on a lot and I’m finding my time is split more and more between personal projects and projects for friends and actual paid work I’m currently building a site for a charity and have editing to do for some one else and I’m supposed to doing photos and filming for a comedy night on sundays all of this is unpaid work this does mean that with all of this I have very little spare time to focus on unpaid work for people so I’m think what I’m going to have to do is put a slow down on the unpaid stuff.
I was speaking to a business mentor the other day who suggested that i set aside a set amount of time each month that I can focus on unpaid work which i think is fair and by far a better way of doing things any thing out side of this time would have to be answered with a request for some remuneration for my time time is money after all.
At the end of the day it comes down to the fact even though I work for my self doesn’t mean that I can work for free which is true I have bills to pay I have retirement to save up for just like every one else does.
the down side to this is that it does mean I haven’t had much time to focus on my drawing which is something that Ive recently got back into.
