Much of the information in this course overlaps my other lynda.com course on freelancing. It's because some of the information is the same, whether you're a freelancer or a new business owner. You may recognize some of it if you've viewed both the courses. Know that it's important for each course to be self-contained. Whatever your goals are, I've tried to cover what you'll need to know about thriving independently in your new venture. As your business grows, and you may need more information along the way. you can reference this course and all the courses that my colleague Terry Lee Stone and I have offered in the lynda.com series called Running a Design Business.
