My advice would be - get a job before you start freelancing. Will follow this up with a post πŸ™

I absolutely dont get this if you dont have knowledge its fine but why are you even telling to get a job before freelancing? Whats the purpose of your blog?

What I’m saying is that it’s a lot easier to freelance successfully if you have some experience under your belt. Experience that is best gotten in a safe low risk environment where you can learn from others - A job.

I know this may sound counterintuitive but in my experience - full time employment with a great engineering team is the best foundation you can get for a freelance career.

Well i dont think so if you have a good job sepcially remote you dont need Freelancing but Freelancing teaches you a lot of things jobs dont. Its all about how skilled you are at the end of the day and a matter of choice.
