I feel as though many graphic designers tend to do a lot of freelance work. I enjoy being able to be my own boss and make my own rules. I haven’t been able to take on too many jobs, but I have had a few and have been able to learn from them. The only downside to freelance work that I have come across is that I will complete or nearly complete a job and then not get paid. I have learned to take half of the agreed pay before I start any work, but now I have to worry about getting the other half. This is one of the only downsides I see in freelancing. How do others deal with this issue, if it is an issue for you? Maybe, I’m just no good at handling business.
