Iam a web developer and seo pro.
and i used to work in companies and advertising agencies but i saw that in one month i may develop about 5 websites and make seo and sem for about 15 companies and this bring profit to the owner about more than 10000$ in a month and my sallery was no more than 1000$
So iam thinking is it better to keep working in a company or start work as a free web developer ?
and if it is better to work free what if i couldn't get clients to work with me ?
help me please to choose the right way and but in your mind that i can start working with adsense and but ads in my own websites and get profit from thins, but this take long time of work and management and maybe i couldn't do it like the way iam thinking i can :S
Help me with your opinions please
If you see what the company makes and what they are willing to consider your value as? Then I would think that the choice would be a no-brainer.
Self employed with a vision(goal), you could probably develop enough work to draw much more income than a company is willing to pay you. Not to mention, you work your own hours and decide how much you're value is truly worth.
This is true but iam afraid of failing and if i failed so i will be getting nothing i will loose my job and my own work to this is the problem iam afraid
The object is to stick with the job while building a side income. When the side income overrides the earnings you receive from the job and you can get it re-occurring monthly, then the job has less value.
the job take most of my time and i can't start to do any thing beside it this is the problem
Then I would have to say that you have a time management problem you need to resolve. Other than that, I cannot be of any further help.
iam thinking about not to work my extra time in my job and save it for starting my own business what do you think ?
I moonlighted for 3 years, doing translation in the evenings while working in full-time employment during the day. Having built up a client base, I was then able to leave employment and go freelance with no financial loss whatsover.
This does probably mean you have to be prepared to work, come home, eat and then carry on working late into the night, as well as working weekends and holidays so as to gain enough experience and clients to make the leap.
great that you did it, hop i can do that too
but as i said the job take alot of time and my job request a big concentration that when i go home i just need to relax
I used to work 9am until 6 or 7pm during the week, plus was often sent to meetings/conferences during the week and over weekends.
I would buy food on the way home, come home, cook for the family, then go upstairs and work unti 2-3 am, and 5 hours later get up and start all over again.
It was not easy, but I was determined that I would become free of employers, managers and all that stuff before my 50th birthday. I managed with 2 months to spare
That is fantastic and i really respect you in a way that you can't imagine it and this is my goal in life and i will do it sure
to have my own business before iam 35 years old
and thanks alot for helping me and supporting me
Being self employed is not for everyone. It is not a cake walk. Often, you work when you are sick, as there is no one to call in to replace you. You are it.
Patience: make sure you have plenty and then some. If you are planning on going solo, try to have at least 6 months of "bill money" put back to cover your current bills. Often, it will take at least a year, if not longer, to show a profit. But if you are careful with how you use the money coming in, you can juggle the bills.
Make sure that whatever line of work you are wanting to go into is something you enjoy. And if it is a job that deals with the public, ask yourself are you a people person?
My parents taught me early in life to be self employed. When I turned 19, they turned their business over to me and my husband to run and although I ran it a little differently than they did, (I didn't work Saturdays), in the first year we doubled the client base, and when I turned 25, I bought the business from them.
I loved it. And I miss it. Still have the building, but can't think what to put in it.
Good luck to you as you start your new career.
Ps, thought you might like this. The day mom n dad turned the keys over to me, they hung a belt on the wall beside my desk. Dad drove a nail in the end that didn't have the buckle which made the buckle on the end hanging down. I asked him why he did that and he said so you can remember to buckle down. (Easy on the spending)
