My name is Francisco and I'm 26 years old. These days I'm planning to start a career on web design as a freelancer but I dont know if I'm too old to start it.
When I was very young (14/15 years old, more than 10 years ago), I loved to hang alone in my room with my two linux pc's and back in those days I learned a little of html, c and c++ (just the basics to understand how them works).
Since I turned 16-18 years old, I got away from computer-systems related things and I studied to be a psychologist. However, these days I'm having this big desire to start a business on my own as a web design freelancer.
It's worth to say that I got 2 clients in the last month but the only thing I did for them was to get a hosting, domain, installed wordpress with a wordpress theme and personalized it. Not much of web designing or programming, just a little html tweaks.
I thing I have the profile to be a web designer. I love to learn new things constantly, I have a sedentary way of life (I can sit in front of my laptop all day), I have knowledge in programming basics, Iím an expert to get the info I need on the web, Iím a little geek. My only concern is that Iím 26 years old, turning 27 in November.
What are your thoughts about it? Iím I too old?
Sorry if my english is poor, itís not my native language, Iím from Mťxico.
