Guide to freelancing: an ebook from Bonsai



View all posts

This year, the number of freelancers in the US hit 57.3 million—that’s 36% of the workforce. People are ditching their nine-to-fives to start and run their own business, with the biggest reason being that they want control over their career.

Going independent is empowering, exciting, and… really challenging. Deciding to make the jump is the first step, but then what?

We collaborated with the freelancing experts at Bonsai to put together a guide to help you succeed on your own, whether you’re an independent designer, developer, photographer, marketer, professional dog-petter—you name it. The Guide to Freelancing contains nine chapters full of tips on establishing your business, finding clients, creating contracts, getting paid on time, and much more.
