Is there a particular source to find these gigs or is it mostly via personal network? I’ve gotten lucky doing a couple things but wouldn’t mind pursuing this route full time if I knew how to find projects.

Doing this right now. I would say steady in NYC but that is based on my personal experience: I got a gig a couple of weeks ago which meant turning down another I was in the running for. And the place I am freelancing at also asked me to help on another pitch. Another friend just wrapped a project so I pulled her in to the place I am freelancing now and she’s interviewing for another freelance gig starting in April.

You’re welcome. I think a while ago the strategist survey asked about freelance rates.

Hit and miss. Just have to wait out quiet periods as there’s less of a strategic need.

Anyone else experience something similar? My SO, friends, and family, who aren’t attorneys, all think that I should be working for some big firm or corporation making tons of money and working 9-5. But when I tell them that my dream is to run my own shop and take interesting cases and help friends develop their businesses, they look at me and say “ok? So go do that then.” I’m like yes, I am. My current firm is very small and allows me that experience and connections and opportunity. (Cont.)

New treat tonight! I’m finding this hotter than the Green Spot but a lot more oak and depth. I’ll have to do a side-by-side to see which I like better as I’m not sure the up charge is worth it since I like my Irish clean and light.

Life is crazy, we went from $92K (household) total income with $107K in debt in 2016 to $400K household with 0 debt, and $570K Net worth in 2021 (including 2 mortgages). Crazy, but super grateful. And yes, we are way happier and healthier. Personally, I am also realizing I am more gentle and kinder to others as well. I used to be on edge and pissed, now I eat ice cream and wish people the best in life.
