Welcome to the first stage! In this video we’re going to set the course for how this series will play out.
[How to Freelance - with Pasan Premaratne - Starting a Freelance Career]
Hi there. My name's Pasan.
Here at Treehouse we teach you lots of things—how to design and build websites, how to create web apps,
build iPhone and Android apps, and lots more.
A lot of our students, including you, then go on to do great and cool things with these new, powerful skills.
You get jobs, start your own businesses, you take your careers into your own hands.
Now one of the things you can do with this new skill set is to become a freelancer.
Freelancing is a door that's open to everyone.
Seemingly easy, lots of people give it a try, but very few really choose it as their long-term career path.
This is understandable. There are lots of things you need to know as a freelancer, and this information is surprisingly hard to find.
Sure there's plenty of books and blogs about the topic, but no one place you can go to—until now.
In this course we will go over everything you need to know to get your freelance career off the ground.
We'll look at where you can find work, what you should charge, how to write a proposal, and lots more.
If that sounds like something you're interested in, let's get started.
