Freelancing is a minefield, and if you don’t traverse it properly you can find yourself in real trouble, fast.
Just browse through any freelance advice board and you’ll see hundreds of horror stories: clients who won’t pay, clients who steal work, clients who demand unreasonable scope-creep, even clients who’ll sue you.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t make a success of freelancing, you just need to ensure that you protect yourself.
