I’ve recently lost my job due to Covid-19. I need to start earning money within the next 4 months so that I can add to my finance’s income, the earlier the better. I enjoy being creative, and feel like I’ve overcome some inner barriers to being successful. I was planning a career change before Covid-19 hit, so this has just forced me to take the plunge into a more creative, enjoyable career. I graduated in Electronic Imaging and Media Communications BSc at Bradford University (U.K) in 2001. I hand coded a basic website using HTML and CSS about 12 years ago, intending to start freelance web developement. My relationship with the second client (family) became difficult and I didn’t complete the website, then I gave up on web development.
I’m managing to work 18hrs a week at the moment. Most of the day I am caring for my two year old while my fiance works. I am thinking of ways to increase the number of hours I am working. I will be able to increase my hours in January when my fiance is on maternity leave.
I have a few questions:
Does anyone have any suggestion for resources for learning freelance web development skills (Marketing, cold calling, drawing up contracts)?
I’m really grateful for this community
Thanks in advance
