I was recently asked by Tim Smith to appear on his exceptional East Wing podcast. We talked about my fight with testicular cancer, how I became a designer, and the new projects we’re working on at Lift.
Now that I’m officially a “freelancer,” I will be the first one to admit, even after 7 years of working on freelance projects on the side, that I don’t know everything. So for this post, I’m going to try something different. Instead of bestowing my vast knowledge and experience upon you, I’m going to open up this blog post for everyone to contribute to. Post your best freelance advice or stories in the comments. If it’s of any value, I will pull it into this post and post the best advice on the Designmoo Blog for the world to tap into.
Post your best freelance advice in the comments below
You may also tweet your advice if you’d like, simply include a link back to the article within your tweet and it will be pulled into the comments below.
If you’ve been involved with WordPress the past few years, odds are you know Tung Do (a.k.a. Small Potato), who ran WPDesigner.com until it was sold last year to deadbeat owner Pawel Ciszewski for $66,000. SP made the decision to leave the WordPress community while frustrated WordPressers watched WPDesigner sit for months with no trace of Pawel or SP to be found. It has been a year since all this went down and I thought it might be nice to catch up with SP and chat about how everything went down and what he’s been up to since last year. If you have any questions you’d like to ask, leave them in the comments and he may just stop by and answer them at some point.
