Freelance is not free…

08Jun10

This past month I’ve had project after project of side video work come through the door. Usually I’ll get a project every couple months or so, but in May, I had five projects on the calendar and I haven’t had much spare time. After lots of debating, I decided it was time to sell my older laptop and buy a more high-powered computer where I’d actually spend most of my time working and not waiting for things to load.  Even though my computer cost the majority of the money I made from side work, it will make me much more efficient when I sit down to edit.

Though I love the money that comes with freelance, it doesn’t come without costs. Many nights I’ve had to spend at a computer screen rather than with Mandy. A few weekends this month I had to travel away from my family to shoot video. I’m not complaining… I’m just saying that it’s not all positives when you’re making lots of money on the side.
