Starting A Freelance Web Design Business

I had my second Freelance Switch article published a couple of weeks ago now (my next one is scheduled for some time in the next week or two) – this one focuses on some of the things I learnt in starting up as a freelance web designer.  9 steps in fact … I love the fact that my career for the past 8 years can be summarised in 9 digestible fact-lets!

So, you want to be a freelance web designer? Ah, the glamor of it all. Your own boss, answering only to the call of your creative muse… get up, feel inspired, do some work, go for a walk, laugh knowingly with other freelancers who have also discovered The Secret: high profile projects, the big bucks, expensive coffee, conferences in glamorous European cities, laughing at the corporate rats you’ve left behind… enjoying the high life that you so richly deserve. Hurrah!

I’m enjoying this writing malarkey – and hopefully it’ll become a regular feature for me.  Certainly, the people at Freelance Switch couldn’t be more helpful.
