Oh I can definitely relate to that too! I also used to live in a really dinky town and sometimes clients acted like they were doing me a favor by offering me $20for a photo shoot, custom ecommerce website, etc. . .
One good client is all it takes to really turn things around though, I promise you they are out there. Keep on grinding!
