Most of my experience has been freelance, It has been a great way of combining my studies with work.
Being freelance has been a hard way of learning the profession as I had to teach myself, learn from my errors and have loads of self discipline.On the other hand it has taught me many important lessons, probably the most important one was how to deal with clients.
