    I'm an OK android developer (1 year of coding experience), i don't have a college degree in computer science.
    Now i'm looking for good source of revenue, here is what i think i should do:
    1- freelance in android development (short term).
    2- after gaining more experience from freelancing.. working for a compony as a developer.
    3- developing my own apps and publish them in the play store ( i have a budget of 3000 USD ).

    what you guy think the best idea (you can provide a different one) for the long term.


    **this is my first Thread here.. please forgive/correct me for any mistake

    Mate for a budget that much I'd like to suggest you go for 3rd option. You probably won't earn much in the early days, along with being obliged to spend most of your time researching, but it's the prettiest bet for the long run.

    Freelance to pay rent.

    Work on your own projects every other spare minute you have until they are successful enough to pay the bills.

    Don't get hired...

    I advice you to first freelance and get the necessary skills and sharpen the skills that you already have. After this you will have a supportive base and the cash which you can start utilize in development of your apps. Try and be unique and useful as the market is full of apps which most people find to be of no use. Do your research well. thank you and all the best

    Hi Mate!
    I recommend you to search a marketplace that accepts the android apps from beginners. They will offer you less money but with the passage of time, you'll learn a lot from working here.

    Thank you man for this interesting advise.. we don't have that kind of people here, i live in a country knows only from internet facebook and youtube (twitter is too complicated here), what i mean my sources limited on internet.. (if you have other sources for Entrepreneurs/ideas.. please share them with me).
    as for my action plan, actually i'm building a "show case" of my projects on play store to start my adventure in freelancing in 2016.. and i'll go from there for the future.

    hey, all you need is internet. plently of great people here and on couple of other forums. if you need someone or if you want to offer your services to someone specific then use linkedin. It's the best place for all your business/marketing/freelance needs.

    First, I appropriate you for acquiring knowledge without going college. I know college is not fact for knowledge but it can help you for acquiring more knowledge. However, I read your three plan and I can see your target $3000. For the fulfillment of these I appropriate you to follow the third steps. You also can do 1 and 2. These also can help you much. You have to mind you have experience so one or two ways are not enough for you. You have to do all for your dream.
