Freelancing — How to Prepare and Get Started

Last week I spoke at the LaDev in Ann Arbor on what it takes to go
out on your own as a freelancing software developer and entrepreneur.

Leo Dion of BrightDigit will discuss what should be done to get started as well
as how what skills you can nurture to become a successful freelancer. We’ll talk
about what is needed to manage your money, your reputation, and your time. If
you are thinking about freelancing or just curious about what freelancing
involves you’ll want to check this out.

I have posted the slides as well as the video of the event which you can check out.

What questions do you have? What challenges have you faced along the way? Let me know on Twitter what are your thoughts.
