    Just to second the above:

    1. Contract
    2. 50% upfront payment
    3. The reason why a freelancer charges more, is because of the lack of job security. It's a risk, and our clients pay for that risk. When I was freelancing, I tried to make sure that my personal finances would never be affected if I was ever jobless for a month or so. Luckily, that never happened, but at least I was prepared.
