    Me getting my first client was an absolute luck. I was talking to a friend when someone overheard me (quite unusual) and asked if I have any experience in web designing with mobile first approach. I told him I do, and he asked me for my portfolio. I sent over my portfolio through email and I had my first client. The gig paid around $1500 and I worked with him for about 2 years. I still do some small projects for him and in fact got 3 other clients from his referral. So you see, it’s luck most of the time. But I will state that having a good network is very important. Now I constantly get offers and have to turn down few cause of low man power. And it is all cause of my network. It started with my first client and has grown ever since.
