We got so excited about the Freelancer’s Bible, we just had to share. And then we realized it’s not being officially launched until November 13th but guess what? We’re too excited to not share at this point! (Amazon’s release date is today so I suppose it’s all semantics at this point, yes?)
Written by Sara Horowitz and amassed from her nearly two decades of work on behalf of the freelance workforce, it seems this book provides steps to become more flexible in an ever-changing journalism landscape.
Some sections to highlight include the following: Seven start-up steps, building your portfolio, getting clients, marketing yourself, managing your work and your life and 10 steps to retirement planning.
In her blog post on The Freelancers Union, Horowitz wrote, “I’ve learned a lot about what makes a successful freelancer. It’s about networks, contacts, contracts, kindness, and so much more.”
