It’s magic

Freelancing is a bit like being a magician sometimes.

There’s technical skill, mastery of a craft, a touch of showmanship, and the careful orchestration of dozens of factors that result in you audience (customers) being delighted and begging for more.

By the same token, a big mistake during showtime (a project) can severely damage your show (business), and repeated failures can result in irreparable damage to your reputation (livelihood).
