The first year of entrepreneurship is nothing short of overwhelming, exhausting and scary as hell.
But for web designers the first year can be straight up frustrating. I wish I could tell things will be different for you, but honestly there are lessons you will likely have to learn the hard way like:
- how to price your services
- when to run from clients like hell
- how to survive the feast and famine cycles
- how to run your business
If you a new web designer, you may be banging your head against the wall trying figure out what a client means by "I’m not sure what I want, but I’ll know it when I see it."
Or curled up under your desk with a bottle of wine crying hysterically when you forgot to backup your work.
Or frustrated that your peers are charging 10K for a website and you can’t get a lead to agree to a measly $1,000.
Before you take your site down, throw your laptop across the room and give up on your dreams of becoming a profitable full time web designer, let me say it gets better!
Listen to my online friends’ journeys as web designers and their advice to new web designer (or designer who’s on the verge of giving up)
