You’re dying to quit your 9-5 and start working as a freelancer,
but you also want to eat and possibly retire someday...
You need a step-by-step guide that takes you from wannabe freelancer to successful solopreneur.
And that's exactly what you’ll get when you buy Instant Freelancer.
You can go back to your cubicle tomorrow, and your soul can die a little bit more...
you can buy Instant Freelancer and plan your escape.
“Freelancing is not for the faint-hearted but more and more talented people, across so many business sectors, are choosing the independent path to fit work into their life rather than the other way round. This ‘how to’ guide, provides a multi-dimensional roadmap on how to succeed and build a lasting business for the new, experienced, or ‘wannabe’ freelancer. No filler—all killer, Sarah has written a book based on bitter (and sweet!) experiences from the freelance frontline. It shouldn’t just be on every freelancer’s shelf; it should be on their desk for daily reference.”

“Working for myself has had an incredibly positive impact on my life. But I wouldn't have been able to do that without people like Sarah forging the path. In this book, she walks you through the critical questions you should ask yourself and answers some of the most common questions that people have when first getting started... all in a very positive and non-judgmental way. This book will help you determine if this path is right for you and give you the tools you need to get started!”
