Not sure if this is the right site for freelancers, but becoming a freelancer is kinda a one-man start-up.
Anyway, my question would be, where to start. I only have a technical education and I actually don't know anything about business and taxes. I'm looking for some kind of a primer for starting a business/becoming a freelancer and I'd prefer it to be general. I'm especially not looking for something that is US specific, since I'm not living in the there.
Also, if this is the wrong site, please feel free to let me know and eventually point me to a better place to ask.
