Re: Balancing retouching with your dayjob
That leaves the rest of the day for my other retouching gig - my 8 year old retouching/illustration business (that will one day soon replace the day job).
Between the two jobs, I get about 4 hours of sleep. I'm ALWAYS working weekends. I am ALWAYS at the agencies looking for work. Whatever time I have left over, I am a father and husband (I am lucky to have a wife that understand the sacrifices that have to be made).
There is no time (now) for friends, hobbies, social activities or relaxation.
This is the price I am paying for starting my own business and being my own boss - nothing feels better than being in charge of your life, not having to punch a time-clock making some other clown rich (while you get peanuts) and not having to deal with fool employers who only know how to say "no", idiots and mediocrity.
Still, it is very hard work.
And it is paying off big time...
