    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

      Yes good article. The thing I struggle with is showing how my work adds value and will make money or business for my client. I get tunnel vision and think that the benefit is what they can pay me. I feel like I want to make as much as possible and then question if I am being greedy. "The value of hiring me is that I get needed money I am desperate for" is not the appropiate answer. How do you show value? I don't have info of how my work made someone money. That is a good suggestion I need to research so that I can show value and benefit. Working with the decision maker is always the best advice with any freelance job.

      Thanks Viki
      I don't make mistakes. I thought I did once but I was wrong.
