So you want to start freelancing

Save 3 – 6 months of expenses I lean strongly towards 6 months.

Then it’s about knowledge, here are some books I strongly recommend.

Get a contract and NDA

General Reading

Learn about Marketing

Learn about Pricing

Podcasts & Courses

That’s a lot of resources so start with Get Clients Now and Book Yourself Solid. Then read The Price is Right.

Today go buy Quitter and read it this weekend.

  1. Great set of resources, thanks. I agree, Book Yourself Solid is a great starting point — lots of great strategies in there. I’d also add Personal MBA by Josh Kaufman to that list. It’s a great primer on business concepts and ideas, and has been really helpful in growing my freelancing biz.
