Riding the freelance rollercoaster Doing It For The Kids

    • Entrepreneurship

“I’ve been running my business for 2 and a half years, with a small baby hiatus in the middle (compounded by, y’know, a global pandemic that stole all the f-ing childcare).

2 and a half years in and I still haven’t learned to ride the rollercoaster of emotions that accompanies doing your own thing. I feel like a dog chasing squirrels made of feelings:

‘Ooh a new idea, I’m so happy!’
‘Oh no a rejection, I’m so sad’
‘Ooh a new client, I’m so happy!’

How can I find some equilibrium guys? I drive myself mad — what about my poor family?”
