Sonic Youth and Cementisentimental better watch out.
Good luck, regardless!

whats your favourite rock
got quite far through the wikipedia page about schists before i realised i hadn't actually understood a full sentence for quite some time.
I have been freelance for over 10 years now and it's the best career/life decision I've made. If you want advice on the most tax efficent ways of working then give me a shout...
I'm pondering my next move at the moment and I applaud your balls to make that move.
Hope you can have a decent Christmas and not think about it too much...
Good for you. I was four days job one day freelance and was thinking I would gradually move into more freelance but the offer of five days was too easy a ride to say no to :-/ kind of sold out tbh. Well done for going it alone bro
Went freelance in May and it's been going pretty well. Although my income is still very low I'm working on a project which should open a lot of doors in the medium term.
I've just seen an advert for a part time job which will roughly quadruple my income but divert a lot of energy away from pursuing the freelance stuff and possibly put me on the road back to dull employment.
the other project I'm working on will be 2 days a week paid from Jan, but in reality needs me to work 3-4 days a week up to the end of March (and possibly beyond).
This leaves literally no time for putting in background work looking for new clients, networking, personal development etc.
I would say 90 per cent of the freelance work I get is through being at evening events/relevant expos etc.
It depends how much of your social life you're willing to shitkick to juggle both.
I guess a parallel worry is that I will just slip back into the mindset of being an employee and undo all the really hard work I've done (but by no means completed) to break out of it.
If you can push the company you're doing 3-4 days with to allow you to get to events on their behalf, that helps to keep your mind broader.
Bit nervous but I'll keep you posted.
