Many jobs in the new economy are jobs for creators. Creators are different from normal employees in the workplace. A teller gets paid for the number of hours that they’re at the bank, doing their job. Our job is different. We’re creating something out of thin air. Creating something for our clients.
We don’t get paid an hourly wage, and when we first start out in business, we often don’t get paid at all. We don’t get paid until we sell the product that we’re creating.
This can be a problem for many new business owners, and often leads to the early demise of many creatives.
There are a few things that we can do that can help insulate against this failure. But, the most important thing is just knowing this possibility of failure exist, and using this knowledge to stay motivated to succeed.
