Freedom Is Never Having To Say Yes: Ep. 230
"I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions." Stephen Covey
We takes risks, we fail, and we make sacrifices as creative entrepreneurs, freelancers, and small business owners. Why put ourselves through such turmoil? Why not clock in for a regular paycheck? It all comes down to freedom. The freedom to create, the freedom to take control of your time, financial freedom, the freedom to call the shots, and the freedom to NEVER HAVE TO SAY YES.
As an employee, you don't have much say in how, when, and what you do for your employer. They own your time, and therefore a lot of your freedom. As a creative entrepreneur, you never have to take a job, or work with a client unless you choose to. This means everything! Can it be difficult to turn away business? Absolutely! But, as soon as you own that part of your freedom, you can concentrate on working with and attracting the kinds of jobs that fulfill your vision for satisfying, creative work.
Jen has a great time at Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference (#MAPCON), but of course she can't get through the conference without an awkward encounter with someone she was hoping to connect with, but something very different happened. Well, there is always next year! I mean, she still has her mojo, after all.
Jen did connect with super-fan Nick from the Dependent Independent Podcast. What a great guy, and a terrific podcaster too! She had tons of fun hanging out with him after exchanging tweets for over a year. Real life people!
