    Outsourcing

    Hi, I am currently trying to find people to outsource work to. Keeping work flow going for me, means passing some jobs that require a good few man hours to teams of people that can do it quicker. However, the quality of freelancers or teams to pool from on Elance, Freelance and even PPH is...

    Is it meant to be tough starting out?

    I read a lot online, and the general view is that starting up as a freelance graphic designer is tough going for a while. Im certainly experiencing that myself.

    Website Copying
