Thanks to dlcm70 from the US for a fantastic review of the show.
This couldn’t have come at a better time. I listened to this from my sickbed this morning and just emailed a client to say his draft would be delayed (without grovelling or giving him the all the gory details!) He just wrote back telling me to give my Netflix account a good workout. Bless! I know if I hadn’t tuned in today I’d have struggled through the fog to finish the draft. You were literally my copy godmothers this morning (and usually are if truth to be told:). Thanks heaps as always for the wisdom and the laughs.
oh how smashing is that. Perfect timing. And the truth is 99% of clients totally get it. They get sick too!
Yeah, Kate, I think we forget that part. It’s not like we’re in this vacuum of I’m-the-only-person-who-gets-sick. Anyone who doesn’t understand? “Note to self. Avoid these folks!”
How funny is that! What a great client.
Great pod. Working with the fuzzy brain does no one any good, as you so graciously remind us. One of the things that aallwwaayys bothered me when I was working for someone else? The martyrs who went to work sick. My last employer had an award ceremony, at a meeting, for an employee who hadn’t missed a day’s work in five years. I looked around the room at all of us looking around the room (:->) counting those who would NOT get the award because the martyr hadn’t stayed home for a day or two to get better. Thanks for giving us permission and encouragement to do the right thing. For EVERYone!
Yes that’s one of the joys of being a freelancer, we don’t have to play the martyr, and yes so many of us still do. There’s no award for working when poorly! Thanks for listening Kathie.
