It’s not always easy to know where to turn for advice as a freelancer; perhaps your goal is to create your first professional portfolio. Maybe you need some help finding those first clients, or you’re working with clients already, but want to level up what you can offer them, and how much you can charge. If any of this sounds familiar, you’re definitely not alone!
