I am web designer currently working at a successful digital marketing agency in the UK. I have reached a stage in my career where I feel I want to push myself further and the freelancing is certainly an attractive option.
After reading all of the blog posts here on Webflow (which are brilliant by the way), I feel sure that I can make a success of it but there are a few things that I am unsure about. Mainly the finance side of it!
I would like to know if anyone else has made the jump from being in a comfortable and secure job to freelancing.
How did you find the transition?
In regards to getting enough money to pay rent etc, was this hard?
Did you get a start up loan or grant?
Or did you have savings or a money buffer just in case things didn’t work out?
If you could share your stories/advise on here, I’d very much appreciate it! I also think that perhaps having a checklist of kit/software you needed before you started maybe helpful.
