Founder of the National Freelancers Union Sara Horowitz speaking & signing The Freelancer's Bible
Freelancing is the new normal. The nation’s 42 million freelancers are self-employed, independent, and they juggle multiple titles and roles. They’ve gone mainstream, and they’re here to stay. Written by the authority on America’s new gig economy, Sara Horowitz, MacArthur “Genius” Fellow and founder of the national Freelancers Union and Freelancers Insurance Company, The Freelancer's Bible is designed to help budding entrepreneurs learn the ropes and seasoned freelancers stay ahead of the curve.
The Freelancer's Bible the one-stop, all-encompassing guide to every practical detail and challenge of being a nimble, flexible, and successful freelancer: the three essentials of getting clients and the three most important ways to keep them happy. Five fee-setting strategies. Thirteen tactics for making it through a prolonged dry spell. Setting up a home office vs. renting space. The one-hour contract. A dozen negotiating dos and don’ts. Building and maintaining your reputation. Dealing with deadbeats. Health Insurance 101. Record-keeping and taxes. Productivity, including a quiz: “What Is Your Ideal Day?” Building a community. Subcontracting and other strategies for taking your freelancing career to the next level. Retirement plans, plans for saving for education and how to achieve financial freedom.
