m3nda1027dRule 6 is superseeded by: "Don't work for anyone that won't pay you in advance".
I know that lot of people fears about not being contracted because didn't FINISHED a fucking great work before, but, what I really fear is to waste 1 fucking minute of my life doing some shit that can't be reused (custom websites) and don't be paid.
Once you say, pay 50% in advance, you're doing the right client selection. Not paying? Don't you have money? Then why should I start anything?
It may be hard to start doing it, but when you start doing it, it's a pleasure.
cephei18726dAlways keep your deadlines!
If you can't, don't accept/promise deadlines in the first place.
M1sf3t451026dhow does working for professional experience compare to rule 7 and 8? I'm about at that point. I've already told a select few people that I would. Other devs, so I'd only be pitching in, but give me another couple of months and I'm liable to be placing a general add on upwork.
start sending invoices every money.
i like that, i'm gonna use that, next time i'll send an e-mail with the title "I did money. Here's your invoice"
