I met with a local church leader who was interested in my skills as a freelance designer and admin assistant.
We knew each other from when I attended church on Sundays, so the conversation was partly a friendly meeting, partly an interview.
Client: How did you get started?
Me: I started freelancing years ago and slowly built my skills and my client base.
Client: Wow, that sounds hard.
Me: There were some tough times, but luckily my husband is very supportive.
Client: Well, I’m surprised your husband decided to stay with you.
What? Who says that? Who leads a church and says that?
