    Great video, Mike! I was wondering, how do you receive payment from your
    clients? I’ve been wanting to start offering my services and I’m trying to
    figure out the best way to accept payment over the internet.

    @brittanyherself The best way is PayPal, it’s low cost and it allows your
    clients to pay with credit card. Paypal does charge a small percentage when
    you pull the money out so I normally pad my price with an extra $50 to
    compensate for the PayPal fees.

    Looking forward to more videos from you, they’re always great. I haven’t
    done much designing since early this year but I’m hoping to start up a
    company soon so i’ll watch most of your videos to further motivate and
    enlighten me :)

    Thank you so much for your advice; I’m just starting my web design career.
    I think focusing on an in-depth project for the next couple of months would
    give my portfolio an edge and help me land a job! Looking forward to more
    of your videos :)

    I have a question. What does a Web programmers house look like ? or a
    better question is, could a full time web programmer make enough money to
    have a nice house and nice car ? and overall nice way of living ?

    Any advise on setting up an ecommerce site for clients? I have not built an
    ecommerce site for clients and have had to turn down work as a result.
    PayPal, EKMPowershop, or alternative…?
