“I found out it was much harder without a large portfolio behind me. I started doing work for non-profits and friends and family at far less than market rate and sometimes even free to build myself up. Once that took place, I was able to start landing some steady clients."

But in many cases it has also increased the amount of competition, particularly in the services sector, where jobs can potentially be completed from almost anywhere in the world.

1. Get your foot in the door first.
Don't share everything your company does when telling your story to someone who knows nothing about it. Write down your pitch and then scale it back to provide just enough information to gain his interest. Then, once you have him intrigued, dive deeper into the "why," "how," and "what" of your company.
