What do you freelance in?

I know many indie hackers freelance.

I also know many indie hackers look to hire freelancers (and struggle to find them).

If you are a freelancer:

  • where can people find out more about you?

    My experiences freelancing have led me to my first product on Indie Hackers: Scoped - a cost estimate and scoping tool for freelancers. I got really tired of how long it takes to develop accurate cost estimates when bidding on a project so I made a Google Sheet template to streamline the process as much as possible.
