Co-workers help you

I once had a co-worker named Dave.

“LET’S F*CKING DO THIS!”

We were finished by 8:30. I made the movie.

Co-workers have different personality types

I once had a co-worker named Cathy.

Co-workers have problems

I once had a co-worker named Pamela.

Do all your work before lunch. Do everyone else’s work after lunch.

As an entrepreneur, your job is to solve problems. It’s how you pay the bills. Imagine how much gratitude will come your way when you do it for free.

Co-workers give you feedback

I once had a co-worker named Marissa.

Co-workers boost your self-confidence

I once had a co-worker named Tami.

Co-workers give you information

I once had a co-worker named Jim.

Final thoughts

Your situation probably looks different than it did at the beginning of this year. But whether you are freelancing, building a business, or looking for work, I can’t offer you any better advice than this — build your own community of “co-workers.”
