Steps to take to become a freelance developer from a fairly skilled React dev.

I want to be a freelance frontend developer.

I'm wondering what skills to know to become a freelance frontend dev
and what does a frontend dev really do?

To give you context;

I fairly have an idea that a frontend dev deals with making frontend part of a website,
though I'm fuzzy on details.

I know HTML, CSS and Javascript [ES6] - I've made some websites with them.

I'm fairly skilled in React - I've made a couple of react apps, called external rest APIs, used styled-components.

I've Never used react-router-dom, redux, typescript yet. I've Never made an app that implement authentication, send data via API, or work on any complex app for that matter. I've Never contributed to open source.
