How do makers sustain themselves while building their product? (Am I doing this wrong?)
Theodore Nikolai Idris
Hey guys 👋 So a little bit of context, I've been out of the work force for almost a year now. Suffered intense burnout from my last 2 jobs (I was a videographer) and since then, I haven't been able to cope. I tried picking up other skills, learned as much as I could about digital marketing, sales, product development and I even picked up development to try to find some way to make a living. Sadly, I still haven't been able to do that. My partner's been pulling a lot of the weight on her own, I'm trying to build a small PWA that's essentially a present for her, but I feel terrible cos after paying off the last of the bills - she found that she couldn't afford to get the dress she wanted for an upcoming festival. I'm not sure what to do. I'm grasping at straws trying to figure out what to do, cos most of my work experiences center around an industry I can't bring myself to work in again. How do you guys do it?
