Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Bowl
My neighbor Lizzie raises exotic chickens. She calls them her “girls.” I’ve met the chickens, though seeing their eggs is enough to demonstrate their variety.
Such a lovely assortment makes a photo I like a lot, and it demonstrates a lesson I apparently have to learn over and over again. You know which lesson I mean.
A freelancer has to juggle clients, deadlines, and even finances. It would be so much easier if we could depend on just one client; if you’re not a good juggler, juggling eggs is not a pretty picture. But if you’ve only got one thing to juggle and that one thing breaks, you’re not a juggler at all.
Let this be a reminder to us all, and I emphatically include myself in that!
