A question for anyone looking to hire a freelance web professional

Normally, I’m pretty laidback and easy-going, but I see this on Craigslist more and more and it just bothers me.

If you need a website built or designed, and you want to hire a freelancer, you’re gonna need to trust us. I look at postings all the time that say stuff like “must be local”, or “must work from my office for this project”, and I don’t really see a good explanation as to WHY you want this.

I want to work with you. I want to help you make your ideas and products come across to your clients. You most likely want to reach clients across the country, or even the world, regardless of their location.

So, if you’re willing to take money from a client who’s not in your office, why aren’t you willing to work with someone who isn’t?
