Freelance In 40 Days: Introduction/Table of Contents

Posted: August 21st, 2009

For a little while now, I’ve been planning on doing a series of tutorials on the ins and outs of freelancing. The problem is where do you start? It made perfect sense to start from the beginning and continue in a natural progression, a la just make a big goddamn tutorial.

I have to give credit to ProBlogger after completing their brilliant 31 Days to Build a Better Blog and Skellie’s awesome post on 30 Days to Be a Freelancer for helping me get the ball rolling on this. For the record, there is no intention of taking Skellie’s post and “sprucing it up” but rather use the daily format which, in my opinion, makes for a better tutorial. I’m adding ten days more anyway so nyeh.

Setting aside one day to learn a subject, then doing a small specific task eventually adds up to getting a lot done after forty days. Freelancing can be overwhelming at the start but taking it day by day and task by task can get you a real jump on your career before you know it. I’ll even give you the weekends off so you can Twitter and drink beer or be a good student and catch up on the tasks assigned to you.
