Today I'm finally going to quit to become a freelancer. Huge relief after 9 years of 9-6 frustration and dealing with management-bullshit. No more wage-slavery for me!

    Thanks for the empathy with my butthole, comrades, but it will be comfortably seated on a financial pillow for the next months and the revolution is planned thoroughly. I'm more worrying about my managers ass when CEO's find out his whole development team burnout-quit.

    I'm not new here, just deleted my account for privacy reasons a year back.

    Also, Markdown!

    @F1973 now I don't trust you anymore. What does F stand for? Sure it's Floyd and not FBI? I'm not important, never have been. Personal cults just hurt the cause.

    Just curious, for anyone who has done this. How do you get clients? Do you reach out to your former clients from your employer? If not that then what do you do?

    Damn one of the worst decision. Oops

    @justamuslimguy some ideas I'm gonna try out: reach out to former collegues who started businesses, LinkedIn and co, reach out to companies you'd really like to work for, freelance-platforms, mouth-propaganda (i.e. friends in other fields of work.. I've had some requests from bands and music-labels for merch-shops through my musician-friends). One guy I know met his first big client through buying a laptop on craigslist and smalltalking while picking it up. Another one took a client from his last job, cause they were so happy with him that they wouldn't want someone else on the product. It's also probably good to have a network of other freelancers and designers. Maybe someone with some more experience as a freelancer can answer this better. I'd also like to hear some more ideas.
