Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
DONT TALK SHIT FROM THE SIDELINE JOIN IN THE FIGHT!
Anonymous said: What advice would you give on budgeting for someone who can't worth a damn?? Did you have a nest egg before you quit your 9-5 to do design?
All I had when I quit was my last check but I knew I could easily line up design work. The reason I wasn’t designing much at the time is because working full time I had no time or energy to. I was exhausted after work, I think more mentally than anything. Working a job you hate really takes its toll. I had just finally had enough and said why am I doing this to myself? I literally could do 2 design jobs a month and be completely fine with bills. there’s just always that ‘what if i don’t get any work?” it happens. We all like to know we have the option of showing up to work and getting that pay check. I think that’s why many like the safety net of a 9-5. I don’t recommend just flat out quitting your job with no type of plan BUT get a side hustle and when it grows enough to allow you to quit that thing you hate go for it! There are so many things you can do online whether creative or not. I know plenty of people who earn a living from home buying wholesale items and selling them in online shops or hand making things and selling on etsy etc. There are ways to create a side income that you can stash away you just have to be open minded and have the drive to do it. I’m always here for people who need advice on trying to start something on their own.
