    Hi,

    I can see lots of professionals having personal project, nothing related to work, eg, numerous of mattlock's projects

    basically start with cold calls, people might question your motive, as long you have a good intention, sincerity, with past works to support you, persistent will pay off.

    it wouldn't be easy, and nothing is easy, that's makes the project special, else everyone will start a project everywhere.

    Hope this help.

    Miguel, xactly what sort of projects are you thinking about?

    There are quite a few professionals who frequently share valuable knowledge here. It's at a different level than in the US or UK, but still, it's invaluable to non-professionals.

    Give us a clear idea of the project, and that might get you better or more specific response.

    CHEERS!
