    Long story short.

    Lawsuit against parents. In college. Can't get student loan. Need $2,000/mo for tuition/living.

    Where does everyone find design work? :dunno:

    I thought you were baller with all your startups.

    edit: And I got all my work via word of mouth, outsource the design to a couple trustworthy designers of mine.

    Crooked business partners ran off with business' cash leaving the bonding company who owned the cash to go after my parents. :hs:

    My problem is that I'm in with the right people but it hasn't started paying off yet. :hsd: My current projects have the potential to be huge, but they're still in development. I need to freelance to tide me over until they're up in late October (probably not sustainable until mid Novermber or early December). It really sucks for me because the level of work I do typically requires a full-time position to find work without being horribly ripped off, or to do freelance full time. I'm in some sort of no man's land. :run:

    Hey man, sorry to hear about your current situation. I checked out your portfolio and you have some really nice pieces of work in there. Have you thought about submitting your site to some css/design galleries? Doing that will get your name out, and not cost you :)

    I was considering doing some CPC advertising locally, but your idea is much better. Thanks for the suggestion. :bowdown:

    My parents' business partners stole company's money (which belonged to someone else; that someone else sued parents because they couldn't find other people).
