You want to be creative in life, but of course there will be hurdles.

What are they and how do you get over them? Here is what you can do, thanks to our friends at The Creative Group.


  • Heavy workloads is one of the biggest hurdles, 69% of creative professionals work more than 40 hours per week and 23% of people work 46 hours or more per week.
  • Two thirds of agencies anticipate more hiring in the next three years, about half of in-house teams will take on more freelancers in the same period.
  • Creative teams and agencies turn to freelancers to help with heavy workloads and to access specialised skills that don’t exist internally.
  • Indicators that it’s time to hire: Overtime is becoming the norm, client satisfaction is slipping, non-urgent projects are repeatedly deferred, managers are stepping in regularly to handle day-to-day tasks.
