In the spaces this past week between the stress and deadlines I have been thinking a lot about the business I run, the work I love, and the talents I have. I don't think it all matches.
Do you do what you love (or at least don't hate) and what you're good at? If you've ever switched direction or focus, how difficult was it to adjust the outside world's perception of you? Did you take a pay cut or loose clients because of it? Did it even work for you?
