Update! Since writing this post I created a Website dedicated to showcasing the tools and resources mentioned here — as well as new ones. You can find it here: http://wefreelancing.com and here’s a blog post about the project.

If you’re considering a freelancing career, congratulations! Working for yourself can be highly rewarding and more importantly, a great way to grow. I’ve learned a lot working in full-time roles, but I learned a whole different set of skills working for myself. It gives you a unique perspective that you can’t find in full-time employment.

I freelanced for different startups in New York City for almost six years as a UX Designer. It was a great time to freelance; the tech scene was bubbling up and didn’t stop. I loved it. There are pros and cons to both freelancing and working full-time. What you really need to figure out is if freelancing is right for you.

Here, I’ll share some tips to help you before and after you start freelancing.

Feel free to tweet to me with any questions or leave a comment.
