    I recently graduated college in Finance and am facing huge opposition in finding employment (like many others I’m sure). I began my college career in graphic design, but later switched because I felt it was too specific. I’ve recently have had a lot of push from family, friends, and a few previous clients to start my own design agency. This website is super helpful and has encouraged me to move forward.

    A little background: I began doing graphic work on the side for about 5 years now. I’ve done everything from real estate layouts to logos, from animated medical diagrams to business cards. I never made super big bucks, but I did have a client base of 8-10 businesses/contacts (most of which have gone ice cold). So my main problem at the moment is redeveloping that client base.

    Any advice and/or guidance for someone in my position would be greatly appreciated!
