The Secret Knowledge of Freelancing–Neil Gaiman

This is author Neil Gaiman addressing the University of the Arts Class of 2012.

It’s a genuinely inspiring speech in which he exhorts his audience to Make Good Art.

 

 

He also shares the secret knowledge of freelancing: people get hired because they get hired but … people keep working because:

  • their work is good
  • they are easy to get along with
  • they deliver the work on time.

“And you don’t even need all three.  Two out of three is fine.”

Well worth a 20 minute watch. 

Keep moving towards your mountain.
