It seems like you’re working every waking hour of every damn day, but your income hasn’t budged.
As a matter of fact, your income has been stagnant for the past 3 years.
What the hell do you do to fix this?
You obviously can’t work any more than you already are. Not, at least, without further sacrificing relationships with the important people in your life.
You could raise your rates, but you’re already charging more than some of the popular studios in your area, so you might lose out on business.
You could try to systemize, automate, or delegate work, but you don’t know where to even start with that.
