Freelancing lets you shift gears when the world does
“No matter how much experience you have, how many degrees you have, or how well known you have become — there is always something new to learn. Don’t rest on your past experiences. If you do nothing to improve your skills, you won’t stay where you are.”
There are many myths and misconceptions of working as a freelance. One of them is that you are your own boss.

- Not only are you a designer, you are a seller, collector and accountant.
The freelancing world is not for everyone.
