    How I am making an income in 2020

    How I am making an income in 2020

    I am back with a solo episode this week! I thought it would be nice to check in with you all and see how you were doing and also inform you on ways in which I've pivoted my business to stay afloat for 2020. A lot of this has to do around productivity and thinking big picture, two things that are my weakness. I hope you find this one humbling and motivating!

    How creatives are handling themselves and their businesses during the pandemic

    How creatives are handling themselves and their businesses during the pandemic

    Today I wanted to check in with some of my fellow Chicago photographers and see how they were holding up both personally and professionally throughout this time. As freelancers, we don’t really have the luxury of having co-workers to zoom with on a daily basis or talk strategies for the upcoming quarter. It can be a pretty lonely and individual journey as freelancers. So this was my way of checking in on my colleagues and seeing how they were doing and what the highs and lows are for each of them individually.
