Your business can work for you, not against you.
You are too much of an artist and not enough of a business person. There are just not enough hours in the day to get things things done and you are overwhelmed with the amount of daily distractions and general fatigue. You dream of the day you can have the freedom of time and tranquility. A day when your business and creative processes are streamlined, so you actually have time to upload designs to Dribbble, not running yourself into the ground.
You can have clients that respect you and your expertise and work on stuff that inspires you.
Have you ever had a project that starts out so full of potential and you're sure the finished piece will win awards and show up on blogs and within a couple of weeks you're all like, "I'll give the client whatever stupid changes they want because I'd rather do that than shoot them and end up in jail for murder!?!” When you work with great clients, great work comes out of it. You feel inspired and work faster than usual because it's not a burden or chore. You will never say, ‘yes' again just because it pays the bills.
You can be financially secure and live life on your terms.
You love the flexibility of freelancing and you hate being told what to do. The idea of being able to spend more time with your kids, work from home with your dog at your feet, or travel the world working from your laptop excites you. You have a dream and all you ask for is a decent rate and finding stability by getting out of the feast or famine cycle. The starving artist belief combined with the fact that we're raised to conform to social norms is complete bullshit. You can do whatever you want, when you want, how you want.
