Should you quit your job to work full time on projects?

Should you quit your job to work full time on projects?
By Ian Wootten • Issue #4 • View online
Hey,
Being independent, I’m able to make my own choices about how much client work I take on. I’ve straddled a path of being able to work both full time and part time on side projects in the past. So today I highlight a number of articles on whether makers should quit their jobs to free up time to work on side projects. Read the stories below to decide for yourself and let me know your thoughts.
It is Census day here in the UK, which means if you haven’t before you read this email you need to complete the census as soon as possible! While you’re doing it, take your time to marvel at the online experience of the questionnaire system which I played a part in developing.
This week also marked the welcome re-opening of primary schools in Wales, which meant neither of my children needed homeschooling any more. This now gives me much more flexibility around producing video content for my channel which I’m looking forward to. It’s likely to include lots of M1 Mac videos.
As always, if you have any comments or suggestions for future issues, please feel free to reply to this email and let me know.
Until next time, keep on shipping!
Ian

How my wife feels about me now being a youtuber. Not sure if I should be worried or not. https://t.co/VPq5jTRz8b
