Have you created your first Joomla site yet? If so, you now possess some valuable knowledge that you can use to start your own website development business. It is so easy to sell businesses on the benefits of using Joomla for their site. But one of the difficulties is getting started and showing prospective clients a portfolio of completed sites.
Some non-profit sites are great but many are appalling. Why not approach some and volunteer to update their site to Joomla? They get a site for free and you get to add a site to your portfolio. But better still - insist that they include a flyer to their database containing a special offer for your services. Non-profits often have a great member list who will remember your generosity when they need to re-build their own website.
When you do start making some money using Joomla, please consider supporting the Joomla Project financially.
