The perfect resource for any freelancer at any stage in their career. I found it very informative, and the checklists and quizzes are helpful, too.

The reality of today’s economy means that more people are working part time, as a temp or on a contract basis. This book is a comprehensive (hence, bible) reference covering the broad range of freelance work. From setting up your workspace, tips for handling ‘dry time’ when no work is coming in, the importance of networking and social media, this book has every aspect of the freelance life covered. Sections on contracts, taxes and retirement plans are biased toward an American audience, but the topics are important to consider. Answers for Canadians can be found in sources like Self Counsel Press – or ask your local library for help.
