I’m at the point in my career where I can charge a decent amount of money for the creative services that I provide. I’m usually the one generating proposals and quotes. I’m trying to figure out how to be profitable while still serving our perfect client (not corporations).
But I get bored really fast when it becomes a formula or when I’m working on “safe” design or photography work. I need a good balance of confidence and insecurity. I need to take on work that scares me and challenges me. When I do that, I actually end up challenging myself in the “safer” projects. It’s like a cycle. A really good cycle.
I’m in that stage right now and it feels good in a “oh shit I hope I can do this” sort of way.
