Thinking of going freelance/contracted, any advice?

    I did a lot of freelance for big agencies. There are certainly downsides, but you can get 1-4 months of 40 hour weeks at just about the highest rate you can expect before you've built out a client-base. It's a "safe" way to start freelancing.

    If you know anyone who works at a big agency, start asking around. The agencies are always landing projects they don't have the staff for.
