This work tackles a common problem that creative people face: how to find the time and freedom to pursue art while also making a sufficiently stable and rewarding living. Written by a seasoned career counsellor, it offers hands-on exercises, tips and facts to guide you through the process of career reassessment and exploration. Topics covered include overcoming barriers to change, expanding work options, building a better balance through salaried versus self-employment, interviewing, and restructuring a current position. Real-life examples illustrate how others have struggled with unequal investments in their creative and practical lives and how those imbalances were resolved.
