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] 0:00 Hi there. My name's Pasan. 0:05 Here at Treehouse we teach you lots of things—how to design and build websites, how to create web apps, 0:07 build iPhone and Android apps, and lots more. 0:12 A lot of our students, including you, then go on to do great and cool things with these new, powerful skills. 0:14 You get jobs, start your own businesses, you take your careers into your own hands. 0:21 Now one of the things you can do with this new skill set is to become a freelancer. 0:26 Freelancing is a door that's open to everyone. 0:30 Seemingly easy, lots of people give it a try, but very few really choose it as their long-term career path. 0:33 This is understandable. There are lots of things you need to know as a freelancer, and this information is surprisingly hard to find. 0:39 Sure there's plenty of books and blogs about the topic, but no one place you can go to—until now. 0:46 In this course we will go over everything you need to know to get your freelance career off the ground. 0:52 We'll look at where you can find work, what you should charge, how to write a proposal, and lots more. 0:58 If that sounds like something you're interested in, let's get started. 1:04
