How to Win at IT Freelancing
If you have some IT skills then you should consider freelancing. It is referred to contracting in the UK.
Freelancing gives you the flexibility to work for clients YOU choose. You can do short to medium term work for them while enjoying two or three times what full time employees are paid. Add to that the tax benefits, choosing when you take a vacation and being your own boss and you can see why it is such an attractive prospect.
Freelancing is easier than you think. If you know what you are doing you can actually do it in your spare time while holding down your full time job. So many companies need to stop gap assistance to help with special contracts or to cover unexpected illnesses or resignations.

I worked in the police in the UK for 12 years as a patrol officer and detective. While I was in the job I helped teach the new e-mail system to other officers. I took a few IT exams and then left for a career in IT in June 2000.
I took a few more exams with vendors such as Cisco and Microsoft and got a job working for Cisco for two years. I then started an IT training company teaching Cisco and computer networking courses. I built the business until it had several offices in the UK and then sold it.
I now run a publishing business and several websites teaching IT related subjects. I've learned how to build a successful company and how to make it in the world of IT. I hope what I've learned helps you too.
