Or: How this whole freelance thing is going.
"Keep your editor happy." Yes. Yes, yes. Yes. Also, yes.
Congratulations, Tim! I saw your articles all over the place and it was always a pleasure to read them. Keep on rocking it but always remember:
"I literally haven't figured out how to take an effective vacation without an overwhelming sense of dread and shame. I'm still at a point in my career where I feel like missing opportunities will stall my momentum."
nothing is more exhausting than feeling ashamed for missed opportunities... and this includes vacations and those precious offline-times. Been there, done that. Don't go there ;)
Fantastic. 12 months is the litmus test. If you can make it meet financially and mentally (for the most part), you've made it.
Twelve months later, and I still relish every word of your newsletters. Haven’t missed one yet. Thanks for your fantastic contributions to Capital One Auto Navigator.
Congrats Tim - you've had an impressive year! 👏🏻
