I don't feel that this risk of the freelancer f*cking up is reduced any further even if the employer chose a more qualified/socially-proven guy for the job.At the risk of highjacking this thread, posts like this always concern me.
People starting businesses on the back of a blog post and a cheap course, and then hoping to charge top dollar for a service that they learnt last week.
Personally, I’d have massive issues with giving someone access to my finances / books without knowing they have substantial experience in the field.
When it comes to this kind of work, personal recommendations / social proof is key. A two week course and a cool website isn’t going to cut it!
