episode 6: hustling

In our final episode, we’re going to sum up our exploration of making a living from creative work with one final overarching theme: HUSTLING. This episode’s focus is on the day to day grind. Young people are holding down multiple jobs and are always on the lookout for the next gig. What do you do between contracts when times are lean? And what about long hours in busy times? How do you find time for yourself when every day you’re hustling?
