One of my favourite questions to ask when excitement has struck with a new opportunity is ‘where’s the money coming from?’
It’s so easy to get carried away with the next project or opportunity and not actually consider the money – this happens often for creative people.
In our experience hoping it will come through the Universe or “trust” is what leads many people to burn-out.
This week, write down all the projects & opportunities that you are currently pursuing. Go through the list and for each one, ask yourself ‘Where is the money coming from?’
Of course some projects you may be doing just as a way to give back on a voluntary bases, and that’s fine of course, but just be clear on that and make sure you are properly compensated elsewhere.
