I have always tried to encourage fellow graphic designers to work from home as a freelancer. The common answer: "Its too risky".
These days being employed is a risk as companies are retrenching employees by the thousdands. Every seems to be disposable.
There is more than enough work to go around for freelance graphic designers. If you are willing to give great service and quality design you are guaranteed to do well as there is a shortage of both.
People say the graphic design market is flooded. Yes it is, but flooded with designers who do sloppy work and have no idea how to treat their customers!
What are your thoughts?
