    Hi Brian,

    I have been working as a full-time front end dev and web designer for almost 6 years now. Fortunately, job was always stable and I never got a chance to develop a portfolio or a personal showcase of my work or even a website (I know, sucks), plus most of the projects I have worked on, I can't legally showcase them publicly. Recently, I have been thinking a lot about going freelance or setting up a company like yours. Would you suggest starting some side projects (which I have started doing) to showcase and market my work or is there any other advise you would give me.

    Thanks!

      Hey Aftab. Yeah, that's a tough spot to be in. Are you sure you're unable to show any or parts of the work you did for your company (obviously with attribution of course)? Was that baked into your contract?

      If not, maybe documenting your process and yes, some side projects could at least get something to put out in the world to show physical work. Was
