Hello Guys, I want some comments about the book ‘how to be a rockstar freelancer’. If I get positive comments I will invest my $29
To be honest – I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. Collis sent me a copy a few days ago, but I’ve been so busy. I plan on reading it this weekend.
But from what I’ve heard, it’s fantastic!
Kool There are some other books by the same website. Googled them got really positive response too. But I will buy the book for sure!
I know… I’m biased because I work for Envato But I used to freelance (for about 4 years), and if this book had been available before I started, it would have helped me dramatically.
Being able to produce stuff does not equate to being able to freelance successfully. It’s a brilliant investment in my opinion, and written by two individuals who freelanced very successfully for a few years (I know this from first-hand observation!).
I’ve recommended it to my sister and cousin who are both creatives and both have just finished their degrees, for what it’s worth. If I can recommend it to them I can recommend it to you.
Oh, I wish Collis can send me a copy of that too
Thanks Ryan! I will buy it. I m ExIcTeD!
As an independent observer I can tell you it’s useful if you’re just starting up, there’s a lot of great tips in it and it’s very well written. It does lack details however and it’s somewhat of a light read, especially compared to it’s most important competition (which I won’t mention here for obvious reasons). It’s like web 2.0 to summarize it I think it’s well worth $29 though, you should get it.
I just grabbed it last night and I was impressed with the outline/overview of what it covers, at least. Very good to beginning freelancers and people trying to figure out just how to go about it.
