I'm about to possibly become a freelancer and I'm a bit terrified of all the unknowns. I know you are a freelancer, any advice or words of comfort?

Freelancing is scary- I’ve been doing it for years and still get nervous during the dry spells.  But one thing that is encouraging (if you look at it the right way) is that the industry is changing from a salaried, onsite every day workforce to one that relies more and more on on the flexibility and relatively lower cost of a freelancer workforce.  It seems like there is news of more and more layoffs, so it would seem that a salary doesn’t automatically equate to security anymore.  Learn to network, talk to people, and become a presence.  Studios are looking to expand their freelance pools, so it seems like a good time to jump in.  I wish I could say definitively that everything will be okay, but I am cautiously optimistic.  I hope this helps. :)
