Yay, it's showtime again! Episode 22 sees the arrival of WOODS as well as 3 finished objects, one WIP and a range of gifts and acquisitions.

RUNNING A CREATIVE BUSINESS

Q&A by Lisanne (Theaterkind):

"Dear Hanna Lisa, I have a boss-freelancy-kinda question...currently I work a (more than) fulltime job, but at the same time I would like to have (and actually have) a couple of side projects going on. My family back in Berlin is currently in the midst of buying a house together (and I'm part of it) so my plan is definetely to move back there in the next 6 years or so. I might even consider going back there sooner but as it would mean basically the end of my career as it is now I'm not sure if I'll be ready sooner or not. My dream would be to over the next couple of years build up my "business" as a freelance dramaturg, translator, writer (I'm dreaming of this one book...) and then downgrade to a part time job once I want to move back to Berlin. What is your opinion on that and what would you suggestions regarding my situation?"
