Any Civil Design Freelancer's / Consultants ?
« on: May 22, 2019, 02:52:22 AM »
Hello fellow Mustachians,

I am Yash. It hasn't been that long since I joined this forum and Yet I have learnt so much. Huge thanks to everybody for contributing your first hand experiences.

I am in early stages of my career working as a Civil engineer for last two years in New Zealand and one day would like to be a freelancer/ or a consultant. I am 27 years old and will be debt free in a month and can save around $2500 per month from then on.

Wondering, if there are any freelancers out here who are willing to share their experiences in achieving that and after reaching it. How did you decide to be one and what are the steps and how long did it take to launch and get your first project ?

My major concern is the cost of the software packages which could cost a few thousand dollars worth just for a start. How could i make sure I just don't blow up my initial investment in time and money?
