I think it is a good idea to quit something to another one just to learn something and return to the initial stuff. Nice strategy, am starting also in freelance path as Django developer, but I am coming from office world. How do you find clients ?
I definitely agree even though at the time when I quit, it still felt like a failure. Especially when you know most people tend to go from full-time to freelance. In restrospect, I understand it that was the right choice 🙂
In France we are lucky to have a few popular platform for freelancer called Malt and Comet, which have regulated pricing and only open to a very few countries. That’s mainly where I found clients before and where I plan on looking for mission in the future 🙂
If you have a similar opportunities where you work, I would advice to build presence on those platform. Less international and more local platform tend to work best for me as client in the same country is always easier to convince in my experience.
Good luck in your journey, the first client is always the hardest to find but I am sure you can do it 💪💪
Don’t hesitate to hit me up on Twitter if you need more advice on how to start 😉
