Of course. lots of budgets, lots of client needs. Just look for good work, nice people to work we, and maybe a city where 50% plus of your income is not going towards rent.

I’ve been working on a project for the past few months and gotten close with one of the in house strategist.

I’m new to freelance and running my own business. I feel so scatterbrained and struggling to focus on singular tasks and feel overwhelmed. Especially by multiple emails, slacks and calendars. Anyone been here, what helped?

I sit down to plan daily, have calendar blocks, set expectations, have a spreadsheet for work tracking, people I work with are happy and I write detailed notes. I just feel like a mess in my head.
