Sean, over at Position:Relative has written a very practical and readable article about the challenges faced by independent designers.

The main heads under which he has written the article are :

  • Starting up is hard to do
  • The bills your boss used to pay
  • Too much to chew
  • Shark-Infested waters
  • Losing your way
  • Losing your way, again
  • Procrastination
  • Staying Organized
  • Admin
  • Isolation

While it leans toward painting a gloomy picture, one thing I learned was that it is POSSIBLE for an independent designer to be doing 15 projects at one time! And I thought I was overworked!
