You're the Business: How to Build a Successful Career When You Strike Out Alone, is a book for anyone who wants to start up a new business of their own or has already begun their journey and wants to learn about and overcome some of the challenges we face when working independently.
Are you your own boss? No idea where to turn for help? This is the guide for you.
The 9-5 isn't the only way to make a living. More and more of us are becoming freelancers, side-hustlers or creative entrepreneurs, drawn to flexible working, a better work-life balance and a greater sense of self-worth - all on our own terms. But once you've decided to strike out on your own, the reality dawns on you: where can you turn for help? How do you deal with a knotty client problem alone? What does "payments on account" even mean?
These uncertainties left Anna Codrea-Rado feeling overwhelmed and alone when she first started out. But now, having documented the hard-won lessons and mistakes made along the way in her popular newsletter LANCE, she knows what makes up a successful freelance career. Based on these personal experiences, her candid advice has already helped thousands of people - florists, accountants and journalists alike - develop the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to thrive. And now you can too.
From finding clients and setting rates, to saving for taxes and dealing with insecurities, You're the Business will help you build a long-lasting career you love. Packed with everyday examples and transformative insights, this book will remind you that although you're now going it alone, you don't have to be alone.
