Article: Taking A Day Job Doesn’t Have to Crush Your Soul
Having a day job while pursuing a creative business doesn’t have to be a soul crushing affair as this 99U article proves. There are so many budding and professional creatives out there who, like us, have day jobs on the side, to help finance our businesses. It can be a tough pill to swallow but once you do, there’s loads of perks including (shhh..using works’ internet and computer), paid holidays (!), paid sick leave (!) and of course the freedom that comes with a regular pay check, allowing you to get back down to your business. There’s also comfort in knowing that you’re not alone, and the more we talk about our day jobs, the more normal it becomes and the more opportunities may arise.
