working on the weekends

Standard

When you’re a freelancer, it’s hard to tell clients no. Your income often depends on it. I have two young children (1 and 3) and since they go to daycare during the week, my weekends are reserved entirely for them. Or are they? I still find myself sometimes working to meet my clients’ demands. “Going to print on Monday” often means proofing magazines or writing last-minute ad copy on the weekends. Sometimes even calling clients. How do you set boundaries with your clients?
