For the first year of being self-employed, I took very little time for myself. I would work in the morning, afternoon, evening, weekend, and REPETE. My foot was constantly on the accelerator… GO, GO, GO. Don’t stop, or you might fail. I think many freelancers can relate to this, especially when you’re first starting out. You just took a big leap of faith and now you need to prove to yourself and to those around you that you can succeed. I feel as if I’ve adjusted to this .
