What is missing so far, is a portable strobe with internal battery pack, no cables, high speed syncing and low price.

Lightpainting is a very nice tool to play with. A basically quite simple technique. Put your camera on a tripod by night, set your exposure to loooong (as long as you think you need for your painting to be done), press the button, step in front of your camera and start to paint in your picture.
Busy isn’t success. It’s a lack of priority.
This is not only for self employed, but a lot of us in the creative industries are.
