If you`re an honest person, work hard and PROVE to your clients that your knowledge is worth paying for, you will become a successful web developer. I could go on and on and on but the bottom line is your work ethics speak for themselves. If you have a history of screwing people over you won`t succeed! If you show people that you care, go to great lengths for them, they will most likely refer you to others. It`s taken me 6 years to get where I am and I wouldn`t change it for the world :)
You`re absolutely right. Your work ethics does speak for it self. But remember, not everything that shines is gold. There are so called developers out there that don`t have the decency to give their customer`s something worth looking at.
Although, you might be able to fool you customer into believing that what he has is 100% reliable and good. But to the developer world? if a real web developer looks at your work? they will be disappointed. (I`m not talking about you, I`m just talking in general)
And most of all, search engines can`t read flash. Although adobe and Google are attempting for search engines to read flash, they are still having issues, because the search bots do not read the flash content in paragraphs as a regular web site, it reads it as pure content... So, thats, that.
So here you have these so called Flash designers still using the embed tag for their content... thats funny... Alot of times Brent, a web designer will say anything to get the job, only to ruin something that was better.
It all depends how you look at the picture....

When starting your own business the need to "know-how" is greater than money!
