Mike Kus 18 December 2009 Hi mate, This is sound advice. :) Two thirds of my portfolio is made up from pet projects or jobs I’ve done for nothing for friends. As well as being a lot of fun, these projects are a great opportunity to populate your portfolio with work that you’re not only really proud of but that says something about you. These projects let you express yourself and keep you fired up, which I think is really important. Have a great Christmas and New year, mate!
