Hi Dave,

Thanks for your reply! Great tip, I am only returning home next month so I’m using some free time now in between traveling to put my website and portfolio together.

I already have 2 clients at the moment and another one in exchange for a week of accommodation in the Swiss alps.

The gumtree ad idea is a great idea! I think I’ll do that soon.

Thank you.

Woohoo welcome aboard Josie! Good on you for making the decision to fly solo. Everyone here can relate to the step you’re taking, so you’re definitely not alone.

I have one tip – the great thing about selling a service is that you don’t have to spend time developing a product (your product exists already). So you have the opportunity to start selling or promoting yourself right away, rather than waiting two months.

My advice would be to consider yourself open for business today, put up a free ad on Gumtree, and start doing one active thing every day to get your offer out there. It might take a couple of months to start getting clients, so this could at least help you launch with customers rather than going a couple of extra months with no income.

Good luck!
