Over on Austin Kleon's Tumblr today, he linked to Keri Smith's inspiring list of advice for being successfully self-employed. Her post reached me at just the right time, because it covers a lot of ground I've been working on and thinking through as I'm gearing up my new business.
Keri's number 4 ("It will help you to create a social network of other self-employed people") feels like really good advice. I'm definitely an introvert, so I've been suprised that self-employment has felt lonely at times. I'll work harder to make friends with people in similar situations!
Now it's time to take some more of Keri's advice ("6. Goof off on a regular basis.") and go play drums.
