A Guide for Creating and Growing Your Own Web Design Business

So, you want to be a freelancer? It’s an exciting and challenging world of working in your pajamas and being your own boss.

Freelancing is exciting and scary. It’s a lot of work and a lot of fun. There can be huge rewards and there are massive risks. If you’re going to be a freelancer you need to know what you’re getting into.

Freelancing can give you a lot freedom. You can set your own hours and make your own decisions. You can pursue the work you want to do and find your own fulfillment, not someone else’s.

But it’s not easy and it’s not for everyone. All that freedom comes at a price. You don’t have a steady paycheck. You may be your own boss, but in the end the clients who write the checks are in charge. You can set your own hours, but the work still has to get done. You can’t just clock out at quitting time. If you want to be a freelancer you have to weigh the costs.

We’ll talk about the ins and outs of being a freelancer and give you the full story of what it takes. It’s not an easy path, but it can be extremely rewarding for those who do it right. We’ll cover everything a beginning freelance web designer needs to know.
