Many people would love to turn their individual skills and passions into their livelihood but find the idea of self-employment daunting. Others need to go freelance in order to do the work they do.
Also the world of work is changing and freelancers are becoming an increasingly significant part of the workforce. The number of self-employed people in the UK grew by 35% between 2008 and 2018 and in the creative industries 47% of workers are freelancers.
Being freelance - whether by design or necessity - can be truly liberating but unnerving too, and advice and guidance from real experts is hard to come by.
In The Freelance Bible, Alison Grade, award-winning entrepreneur and freelancer, will show you that you needn’t be afraid to go freelance. She’ll guide you seamlessly through everything that you need to know to start working for yourself. From developing your personal brand, to valuing your time and services, from negotiating tricky deals to staying motivated.
Freelancing is no longer a stopgap or a personal choice but a necessity for many to survive and succeed in the modern work environment. Alison hasn’t just done it herself, she’s trained and mentored many others following that path, and has now condensed it into a book, published by Penguin.
