So... I'm thinking of taking the plunge...
I'm pretty confident I'm going to get hired for a part-time contract graphic design position for a local marketing company, and to do that, I'd have to quit my full-time job. It would mean a LOT less money, but I would be doing something that I really really WANT to be doing.
Rather than get a second part-time job to supplement the smaller paychecks, I think I'm going to try full-time freelancing. I'm super nervous and super scared because if this doesn't work out, I'll probably end up getting evicted for not paying rent, but this has been something I've been wanting to do for absolutely forever, and I think if I really work at it, I could just barely scrape by.
Right now, I'm very open to advice, suggestions, whatever for places to advertise, ways to market myself, how to budget or track invoices, or whatever, honestly. Any useful anything would be super appreciated!
Trying not to panic about this but the more I think about it the more freaked out I get, but I think I want to go for it but I'm so nervous aaaahhhhh!
