Advice to a frustrated webdesigner that wants to freelance

Here is my 2 cents.  I think the first thing that you should do is create a budget.  Write down your monthly expenses so that you will know how much you need to make monthly. 

Next comes the part about generating the income.  One of my most favorite things to say is that the fastest way to make money is to find a need and fill it.  I have participated in many discussions about this.  Businesses like starting a cleaning service, babysitting/daycare service, running errands and doing yard work are all good examples of businesses that still have a very high demand.  Another interesting business that came up was starting a dog-walking service.  If these ideas don't appeal to you and/or you want to do something that is more computer related have you tried Ebay?  There are many Ebay Power Sellers who have successfully managed to earn an income.  There are others who have managed to earn a living income online by piggybacking onto something that is already successful.  In fact one business plan that I create is specifically related to this.  However it is not for everybody but as much as people tout about being able to work from home on their computer there are people that are actually doing it - they just don't brag about it!

And the most important thing that I want you to remember is that regardless of what business you start - remember your main objective is being able to be a professional webdesigner and that you are doing one thing to be able to do what you want.
