It is this freedom to be your own boss, to select your projects and clients, and to have a different lifestyle. This is what draws so many people to a career in freelancing. – Introduction, How to Be a Rockstar Freelancer
Two of my favorite bloggers, Collis and Cyan Ta’eed, have come out with an awesome new e-book that is really a must-read and must-own resource for any aspiring freelancer or anybody who would like to realize the dream of working for himself: How to Be a Rockstar Freelancer.
I actually helped a bit with the editing of this, and as I was reading it, I thought, “My goodness, these guys have really covered everything!”
I mean, this is a complete resource for freelancers, new and old. If you’re an experienced freelancer, like I am, you’ll still find plenty in here you didn’t know. I did, and already it’s helped me improve the business side of my freelancing.
If you’re new to freelancing, this is an indispensable guide to getting started. Seriously, I’ve never seen another guide like this and I wish I had read it when starting out in the game.
If you’re just someone who would like to work for himself someday, and quit your day job eventually, this has a lot of valuable info.
The e-book is actually a steal, if you consider how much value it will have to your career. When I first saw the pricing, my initial thought was: it’s a bit steep for an e-book. But then I realized: think of it as a business expense. If you want to set up a business, you have to spend a little money … and the $29 you’ll spend on this e-book is the best investment you’ll make.
Check out the e-book page for a complete listing of chapters and topics, and you’ll see what a complete resource this is. It’s 212 pages, 11 chapters, and dozens of subchapters, with tons of links and resources and tools.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough. In full disclosure, the links I’ve provided are affiliate links, and these two writers are blogging friends of mine … but I wouldn’t recommend a book so highly if I didn’t think it would be truly valuable to you guys. And this is one case where I have no hesitations in saying that it will be. If it isn’t, email me, and I’ll refund your money myself, no questions asked.
