I’ve had it two ways. Once someone found my portfolio and reached out to me. Another time a coworker referred me to his wife and I did freelance at her agency, both remote. It’s hard to find quality recurring work but sooo worth it

Thanks for the reply. Any success I’ve had is connected to people who can refer me. And good tip on the value of an online presence. I’ll have to get my book to a more visible platform, its been a while since I shared in a community so I’m overdue.

What should I know about contracting? My agency has decided to close after we couldn’t keep up with Covid etc. I lost my full time position there.

All I know about contracting is that you’ll either have a W-2 or 1099 and you set your own rate (which i have done). What else should I know?
