If I had one good piece of advice for the budding freelancer it would be this, Ask Questions. One problem I had when first starting out was that I was afraid to ask questions, why, you may ask.. Because I was afraid that my clients might think I didn’t know what I was doing. Obviously, if I had to ask, then I didn’t know and therefore I didn’t know what I was doing. I know, it sounds silly but I consider myself a fairly smart individual and I made those mistakes. We all make mistakes when starting out.  Hell, we all make mistakes as professionals. It doesn’t matter how long you have been in this business, even veterans ask questions.  In fact, veterans usually ask more questions, because they know what needs to be asked.  Their questions are just more refined.   So don’t be afraid to ask, your clients will have a better experience in the end and a better web property to show for it.
