Freelance Launch. By J M Cooper.

Freelance Launch – How to Start Your Freelance Career From Scratch


I’ve spent the last six years running a successful freelance business while travelling all over Europe. For myself and many others, freelancing means freedom – the freedom to set your own hours and work from anywhere in the world.
Launching a freelance career without experience is really tough. I started completely from scratch, teaching myself the skills that I needed and working late into the night for months to find those first few clients. I made a lot of mistakes and missed opportunities in those early days, wasting precious time and money – if I’d known then what I know now, I could have become profitable and hit the road much earlier!
This is the book I wish I’d had. A step by step guide to starting a freelance career, even if you have zero experience right now.

Would you like to quit your job and become your own boss? Do you want to build a successful freelance business, but don’t have any experience? Are you ready to learn new skills, but don’t know what to choose or where to start? Do you want the freedom to travel and work from anywhere in the world, but don’t know how to get started? Then I wrote this book for you.
