Remember all that advice Mom gave you when you were growing up? What if it’s hindering your success as a creative freelancer?
In my latest Freelance Column for HOW Magazine (on newsstands now), I look closely at Mom's pearls of wisdom to see how applicable they are today, for freelancers and the creatively self-employed.
I also did a two part podcast version.
In Part 1, I explore these tidbits of advice:
• Don’t talk to strangers
• It’s impolite to talk about money
• Don’t talk with your mouth full
In Part 2, I focus on these words of wisdom:
•Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill
•Use your head
•Don’t give it away too soon
•Save your money
Find out which ones are still relevant (because Mom was sometimes right), and which ones need to be replaced with new rules.
