Topic: I want to become a freelancer
My history is short really, I've been a Java Programmer for the last 6 years now, I'm even certified, and even though I could easily continue in this path for many more years, I've grown tired of it, I don't like doing it anymore, and seeing that the best programmers in this country are dedicated to do freelance jobs using RoR, I decided to follow their example. (They say one should do what the successful people are doing, right?)
These guys usually quit their jobs and just went for it, I'm convinced I can do the same... So, I'm writing this post because I want to have your opinion, because even though I'm certain that this is what I want to do, I know I'll probably gonna starve myself for some months before I can really pull this off !
So, what do you think? I'm mainly aiming myself to work at Odesk. What is the best advice you can give me about it? I really want to make it happen.
If there's someone here who has or is working at ODesk, it'd be really nice to hear from you. well, I don't even know what exactly to ask here, I guess I just want/need to know what I'm getting myself into....
Thanks for taking your time to read my post.
