Work-life boundaries

August 1, 2023

A new article on BBC Worklife, The quiet guilt of self-employment written by Kate Morgan, spells out a problem known to many freelancers:

It’s expensive to take a time off, and it’s easy to work more hours and make more money instead of taking a rest.

“This is not to say self-employment is all bad. Despite the long hours and the stress of being the sole source of your own income – and even despite the burnout – some data shows some self-employed people report higher rates of satisfaction and feel more fulfilled at work. There’s a good reason many keep at it.”
