Trying to Make Money in Web Design

Like a lot of people I just do not really care for working for other people. In an ideal world I would be able to make a lot of money without having to sit in an office fifty hours per week and with no other person telling me what I had to do. It is pretty hard to figure out how to make that happen in the real world obviously. I started thinking about this and then I met a guy in school who was working on a plastic surgery website design. He was doing it as a side project while he studied computer science, which is something that I am thinking pretty seriously about when I go to college next year. It is obviously the sort of thing that fits in the profile I was looking at, but it is not that simple. The guy I met knew a guy who had been in medical school a few years earlier. So he was designing the web page for a guy that he knew.

That is the big problem with this idea for me, because you would really need to have an organization in order for it to work effectively. Even if I know how to design the web pages, that is not going to be enough. You have to find people who want you to make web pages for them. In fact you probably have to figure out how to get a lot of them to pay you. It is going to take a lot of time to do all of these sorts of jobs and that is going to keep you from doing the stuff that you actually get paid to do. So instead of being able to do it all on your own, you are going to need a group of people behind you.
