Daniel from Long Beach, CA
Web design

Dan is thinking of getting into web design. What does he need to do? Leo says that having an understanding of HTML and CSS is important to understand how the websites are built. He should also know Javascript. All three of these are fundamental to learning how to create a good website. There's also Frameworks, which would enable him to design interactive and immersive websites. They are done through Google, Twitter, and others. It would also be a good idea to become an expert in a content management system like WordPress or Squarespace.

What should he charge to do this? Leo says he should charge an hourly rate rather than a flat fee. Around $50 an hour. Then he should also charge a monthly support fee.
