Your Solar Plexus Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your Solar Plexus Chakra is located right under your heart chakra. I used to confuse this one with the Sacral Chakra often. I just remember Sacral as “Second,” which is a weird association but it works for me.

How to get great results from your hired freelance creative

In my last post, I talked about how creatives can handle revisions from tricky clients. If you're someone who hired a creative and you're having issues, you might be thinking, "hey that's not fair! I'm easy to work with and they keep screwing up!" So, I wanted to write a post geared to you specifically, to help you get the best revisions as a client.   When Your Project Isn't Perfect It's a drag to hire a creative person for a project, only to receive the finished product and be less-than-thrilled with the result. I've been there. I've been the crea[...]

The Creative Freelancer’s Guide to Revisions

How to make revisions for clients without losing your mind

As a session singer, I work with different clients on a daily basis. If all goes well, we both fully understand each other and the project's goal. The tracks are submitted, there are no revisions, and everyone is happy. However, every once in a while that is not the case. Every creative freelancer goes through this. It doesn't matter if you're a singer, painter, graphic designer, or basket weaver, we all have (or will have) a client who wants multiple edits. So, how do you provide multiple edits without compromising your creativity or tearing your hair out? Her[...]
