    Hello everyone,
    I am creating this thread to keep track of my progress in Web Design.

    Background: 21 years old, started to learn coding one and half month ago , decent html/css knowledge and basic seo knowledge so far

    Current Situation: About to finish my first project and the short term goal is to finish the portfolio stage by completing at least 3 projects that would help me land in clients in future.

    What I want to achieve in future: Be an entrepreneur, create a full income stream from web design, be location independent and eventually move and establish a fastlane business.

    I will keep this thread updated as frequently and detailed as I can. I hope this thread will motivate/inspire others who might want to embark on the same journey in future.

    Feel free to contact me about anything :)

    Heres a tip: get clients on a monthly retainer for maintenance/updates/other stuff.

    They WILL need it.

    Week 1 Progress:
    About to finish my first portfolio project for a DJ (Unfortunately for me Portfolio stage is taking much more than expected) which I am doing to the my best of abilities to create a great first-piece.
    I have been utilizing Trello for workflow and increased productivity thanks to the amazing post I discovered here (GOLD! - Achieve Laser FOCUS + PRODUCTIVITY With The System Legendary Fastlaners Use...)
    Preparing my prospecting list and narrowing down the potential clients/niches
    Went through Rob's sales course again as sales is the most important aspect

    Plans going forward:
    Do a project/design for a big company in a big industry for free to use it for later jobs
    Starting Cold-calling / E-mailing after the first portfolio piece (15 prospects a day)
    Try doing smaller jobs related to a big niche I want to target as Rob suggests in his post

    Such a high value comment really appreciate it! And yes definitely it's not a overnight process but I believe that with hard work it's achievable. I wish you good luck as well :)

    This is the most important. There are web designers literally starving because of a sales slump.

    Week 2 Progress:
    Finally put the DJ website online
    Currently working on another portfolio project
    It's been a very busy week with exam preparations taking up bulk of my time, but will return to full attention from Friday on

    Plans Moving Forward:
    Finish the second portfolio project within a week
    Fully set up my own web design website
    Push to finish the website for my initial client that I had to postpone for some time
    If it does not materialize start prospecting immediately and put the target niche plan into action
    Go through prospecting and sales courses again and take notes
