Sometimes running a small business is extremely exhausting. You are the one being the creative, the manager, the accountant, the administrator, the public relations officer and everything in between.
Sometimes you have to do more of everything else than being creative and actually do interesting projects, and that’s ok, it’s part of the process.
This illustration is how I feel lately with my work. I do so many things other than designing which makes me feel pressured and tired. I sometimes feel that I work so much that being a freelancer doesn’t pay back responsively to the work done. Most of the times I struggle to explain what my job is and I get rejected on projects because people don’t understand the work behind the price given.
