About one year ago i made the decision to become self employed and have promised myself that I would never allow myself to be employed in a traditional job with a ‘boss’ every again, I have had too many very bad experiences, and love the feel of being my own boss and the self-employed lifestyle.
Looking into the future, my goal is to become a freelance web developer, a more sustainable option rather than window cleaning (No Rain or freezing my fingers off in winter!!). I am fully aware that this will take a lot of time and effort to get myself up to the standard where I can sell my services, I know this is not a quick thing- I’m looking at 2-3 years of learning until I fully make the switch.
But one question that’s running through my mind as I make my learning plan, is apart from the obvious coding and business sense, what other skills and knowledge do I need to become a successful web developer?
Thanks in advance!!
