The REAL concept of Freelancing
So many people nowdays are "freelancers." However, with so many people taking on independent work, it's become the accepted conclusion that freelancing isn't that profitable, or that it's not long-term work, etc. etc. This is WRONG.
The "real" freelancers are people who do work for companies, businesses, and other clients that will need work on a regular basis. They have contracts with clients, and they make a decent living out of it. My mother is a freelancer and she hasn't been thrown out of her home.
"Freelancing" does not mean $20 logo design or $50 web design. Freelancing means working with a client for hours and charging xx/hour or xxx-xxxx/project. It means having quotes and pricing yourself to your needs, not to undercut the amateurs on Digital Point.
So are you a REAL freelancer, or are you someone who does small website design part time? What do you think defines a 'professional freelance designer' from the everyday student who just wants $30 for a pizza. Share your opinions.
