Many people enter the creative self-employment industry wide-eyed and hopeful. And while optimism is a driving force for small businesses to prosper, there are internal struggles that can hamper one's success. I am writing a book that will expose the trials and triumphs to help creative types to lead more fulfilling careers.
Is business slow, and you don't know what to do with the extra time? Do you feel like you're not contributing if you don't work 40 hours a week? Are you troubled by paying for health care? Are you working excessive hours and don't know how to give yourself a break?
I want to hear from all types...those who are so hard working and can't relax and those who procrastinate. The book will include a hopeful tone, but highlight the problems that the self-employed face. To contribute, visit http://www.kristenfischer.com/creatively.htm.
