Freelance Inspiration


It seems like there’s been a fair amount of discussion around the blogosphere this week talking about when times get tough.  Even Tamara brought it up with her post “When the Customer Makes You Cry.”  But let’s not forget about the reasons we’ve chosen to run our own businesses in the first place. 

Frank Lloyd Wright puts it beautifully with these words:

 “I know the price of success:  dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.”

Often our definitions of success have less to do with the work than they do with the outcome.  For work-at-home parents success may be spending more time with their children, exercising their creativity, being able to afford a few extras, or even the satisfaction of being one’s own boss.  The common denomonator is that we must determine what it is that we want and then work with dedication to see it happen.

 We’re curious.  How do you define satisfaction in your work?  Is it sending off a completed project ahead of deadline?  Is it building a college fund for your kids?  I think I can speak for both Tamara and me when I say that our satisfaction comes from making our own decisions and spending time with our loved ones.
