Almost everyone is on the Internet these days, and parents often volunteer to
create and run websites for their kids' various activities. If you're good
enough at it, why not make it a career?
If you've got the skills, this job allows you meet with clients and create a
website that meets their needs. You craft the look and feel of the site and
ensure the graphic design dovetails with what the site is trying to accomplish,
as well as provide the level of functionality specified by the client.
Although skills such as Dreamweaver and HTML are certainly required, you can
teach yourself many of the necessary programs. Self-employed web designers often
set their own hours and work from home as well.
