Invaluable pieces of information... 19:02

The information provided in this article is indeed quite helpful. I found point number 6 the most crucial of all. For any newbie it is fortunately/unfortunately quite difficult to understand industry's standards quickly. It becomes more difficult in case of Freelancing, which is as good as running your own business, and hence brings along fear and uncertainty with it during the initial stages, which can easily lead to desperation, if not checked.
Thanks Nicole for the article.
