Do you really need to pay for it?

Take note, there is an excellent chance that you don't need to pay for custom work if you are willing to spend the time to educate yourself or work with others in the open forum.

The forum itself was founded on the open sharing of information and collaboration towards common goals. Especially between Elite Members, this means that there are a lot of people here that are willing to help you for free if you ask in the open forum or the appropriate thread.

So before you hire someone and pay money, be sure it is really necessary. And if you do go forward with hiring someone, consider donating the finished product/code back to the community by publishing it in the open forum or the Elite Members section of the forum so it can benefit others.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
