If you’re happy and you know it…wait, what?

If your hands aren’t clapping right now, you’re not alone. The pursuit of happiness is an age-old struggle, one that is especially tough when you’re trying to achieve happiness at work.

Becoming a full-time freelancer is an exciting, life-changing, and unique career decision. But the unique road is often a lonely road, which is why it can be harder for independents to find contentment on the job.

Luckily, a freelancer who has been there and done that has come to the rescue. Boston-based artist Veronica Fish created an illustrated, how-to guide to freelancer happiness, and it is awesome.

Her five-part series is comprehensive. From working at home and being your own boss to coping with loneliness and dealing with clients, she’s anticipated all your questions and then some.

Plus, the helpful how-to articles are peppered with Veronica’s freelancer-centric illustrations. The road to happiness is paved with pretty pictures.

Check it out and give Veronica Fish a round of happy applause.
