Striving freelancers, listen to me. Keep going. Just because you work from home doesn’t mean you’re worth less than your office-constrained counterparts. Don’t sell yourself short.
In 1990, Bill Watterson, creator of the beloved comic ‘Calvin & Hobbes’, took the podium and delivered an inspirational commencement speech to the graduates of Kenyon College. He shared unforgettable moments from his personal life and the struggles he faced with what he referred to as a real job — a job that’s creatively and intellectually unfulfilling. A job you take just for the money. A job you hate.
As a tribute to Bill Watterson,artist Gavin Aung Than took Bills words and transformed it into an inspirational comic strip.
If you’re stuck in a job you hate and hope to get out, I believe you should read it. Then take a moment to thank Bill Watterson for bringing Calvin & Hobbes into the world and our lives.
