I have been thinking about freelancing for a couple of years and was just starting to build up my courage to make the switch when I lost my full time job.

I am both excited and terrified about this new adventure I am embarking on, but I know this is the right decision for my career at this moment. I feel like my biggest challenge is overcoming my self-doubt and believing that I can make this work. Thankfully I have been working from home full-time for the last 3 years so I am used to juggling work and life outside design but my biggest fear is finding clients. Where do you find them and how do you find them while you are working for another client? Twitter has proven to be a lifesaver as I have read numerous articles about freelancing and design resources that I hope to implement. At this point, going back to a 9-5 just wouldn’t feel right so I’m going to make this work.
