Never Give Up – I need this in lights on the wall in my study. At times freelancing can be tricky and can push you to the edge. Don’t get me wrong – I still love being my own boss and I would not give it up for just anything, but at times the isolation of working on my own and the scariness of “quiet periods” can take it’s toll. Thankfully I have a wonderful husband who believes in me and always gives me that little push to get me back on track again. Make no mistake – he is a tough critic and being a creative director at an ad agency means he is a very hard task master, but I know he sees something in me that I often can’t see. I am so blessed – if it wasn’t for his encouragement and perseverance I would be nowhere. Thanks Alexis – you are the bomb!
So on a more constructive note – I have decided that possibly I should look into renting a desk for a couple of days a week. Somewhere close by, in a creative space, with like minded people.
Working entirely on my own is great – I get lots done and I am very focused, but at times it is very isolating. There is no-one to bounce an idea off, no one to have a quick look at something you are working on, no one to offer an alternate opinion – at this point in my Freelance career I think I really need this.
So this is where I need your help – Do you know of any really cool spaces that are available within the Cape Town CBD? I am looking for a desk for one maybe two days of the week, access to the interwebs (& good coffee) and a fabulous vibe. Please let me know, I really would appreciate any and all suggestions.
