We define a creative as one who uses their creative or intellectual knowledge and skill to earn a living. Examples include; bloggers, writers, graphic designers, podcasters, coaches, vloggers etc
We have highlighted some ways you can avoid burnout as a creative;
- Set boundaries: Evaluate each opportunity for work that comes your way before accepting it. Have specific work hours and stick with it. Do not feel guilty for referring a client you cannot adequately attend to.
