I had this book in my library for a few years. It was a great source and learning tool when I needed to solution to the problem at hand. If you're one to collect and build physical libraries for your office, it's a good one to have.

I have found this books approach to be very helpful and encouraging. Very good for anyone thinking of going into freelance for graphic design.

In the past, I have worked for others. More recently, I have run my own business. A few months ago, I closed that business and moved back to the U.S.A. and am currently doing a little bit of freelance work, writing mostly, just until I begin my grad school program.

My experience with freelancing has been mixed, primarily because I have discovered that I have some gaps in my knowledge.

To see if I could get some help, I picked up this book. While the book is focused on working as a website designer, the main principles should apply to most fields. That is good. I have done some website design, but the bulk of my freelance work has been writing for books and magazines, or consulting.

I have enjoyed reading this book. In short, the content is about 20% pep talk, 20% reality check, with the remaining 60% being great advice and useful information.

Obviously, no book will ensure that anyone will be a success at freelancing, but I could have used the information in this book a long time ago, before I started my last business. That business was successful, but I would have benefited greatly from the insights in this book, and in retrospect, I would have done several things differently.

The Principles of Successful Freelancing gives great advice about what is really needed to be successful working for yourself. It starts by having you ask yourself the right questions to determine your attitude, your capabilities, and to make sure your perspective and expectations of the process are realistic. It then moves into practical steps of preparing for the transition from employee to self-employed, managing your finances, preparing your work space, finding and keeping clients, and so on. It even has a great chapter about learning how to find and maintain a healthy work and life balance as well as advice for making the transition in reverse, if you find this isn't the life for you.

At my current stage of life, I don't expect freelance work to be much more than a side project. That doesn't mean I will never go back to working for myself, or starting a business with a partner or two, but for the moment I am content to do a bit of writing here and there to earn some extra income and prepare to do something else as my main source of money. This book has many good tips for freelancing part time as well, and has been well worth the time I spent reading it.

For anyone considering opening a freelance business, or who has recently begun offering consulting/freelance services, this guidebook provides an excellent introduction to the benefits and limitations of going it on your own. It was written by a successful Australian web services consultant and some of its advice is more applicable to web and similar service-based consultancies, than others which have physical deliverables or which offer licensed professional services. Its advice on time and money management, selling of services, living a balanced work/home/play lifestyle, and dealing with problem clients is universally applicable to anyone going it on their own (and is excellent). Certain topics such as business structure, whether to incorporate, accounting issues, professional liability, and the management of multi-person multi-deliverable projects are omitted or less well covered. I certainly would recommend this book to anyone considering going it on their as a sole-practitioner services firm--it effectively conveys the business and personal considerations of this lifestyle/profession. I would also urge those who wish to offer professional services other than web consulting to look at practice management publications in their profession, join trade associations and obtain legally necessary advice. But this book will acquaint anyone who wishes to run their own service business of many necessary considerations and pitfalls. For that purpose it is most valuable.
