This article published on A Sound Effect was written for audio freelancers, although most of it can be applied even if your field isn’t audio.
As I saw myself shifting career, after loosing my job as a sound designer in Lisbon, balancing out financial needs with new necessities that require different routines and approaches, hasn’t been easy. So not only I wrote about managing time and health, but also I strongly considered side hustles if they are meant to become a major source of income.
The article discusses why we should prioritize sleep regardless of the work load, how to articulate our professional activities with social media, how to pick side hustles wisely, managing clients, etc.
It has the participation of some people in the wonderful sound community too.
I hope this will help you in any way. Please read the full article here.
