So the time has come when I've joined the online groups, bought a new mac, 3 weeks until I launch my online portfolio and get my business cards and hand in my notice at my full time job. I've read the tips section on here but they are relatively self explanitory and obvious, are there any people here who have pearls of wisdom to share about the initial leap? I have 3 jobs lined up and am planning a local visit to small businesses and pubs/independant retailers to start with. Anything else I have not thought about. Ps I'm a graduate, a newb, a girl and I dont do 3 letter acronyms please be kind.
