Startups is proud to announce the launch of our latest book, offering a definitive guide for people setting up as freelance.Going Freelance
is the first book in the new Startups Series by Crimson Publishing, and will be followed by similar publications,Taking on Staff
and Business Plans for Small Businesses.
Each publication offers no-nonsense practical information, top tips and step-by-step guides, as well as personal case studies from people who have recently experienced these ventures, and insights from industry experts.
Written by experienced freelancer and business editor Stuart Derrick, Going Freelance
provides a one-stop-shop for every question new freelancers grapple with, including the legalities of setting up as self-employed, managing your time and workload, and organising your finances – with a chapter dedicated to surviving that crucial first year.
Startups’ editorial director, Ian Wallis, said: “The decision to go freelance is one of the fastest rising trends, which is why we believe Going Freelance
should be essential reading for those who take the plunge.
“Whether by necessity, in a marketplace where full-time employment is less forthcoming, or by choice, to create a lifestyle where work fits around other commitments, freelancing is giving career independence to a vast legion of talented people.”
He added: “The role of technology too cannot be understated. In an era where Wi-Fi, improved broadband speeds and app-laden smartphones are enabling the flexible worker, we believe this book will help many take their first, formative, steps into the highly attractive freelancing world.”
