Availability: Ready to download

Are you an introvert? If you're happy in your own company most of the time, have just a few really close friends and prefer to work alone, the answer is probably yes. Introverts find external stimulation overwhelming, so they look for ways to retreat from it. A situation that’s easy or fun for one person can be way too much for an introvert. That's fine as long as they have a Are you an introvert? If you're happy in your own company most of the time, have just a few really close friends and prefer to work alone, the answer is probably yes. Introverts find external stimulation overwhelming, so they look for ways to retreat from it. A situation that’s easy or fun for one person can be way too much for an introvert. That's fine as long as they have a choice. But that can change when they go to work. Modern working styles like open-plan offices, brainstorming and teamwork can be really hard on introverts. The hands-on work is OK, but the emotional labour of working with others can be draining. Freelancing offers introverts a way out – a chance to work alone, control their workload and create their own workspace. It can be ideal. However, it also takes work. Going freelance means running a one-person business. It means setting direction, organizing your schedule and setting priorities. It means hustling for work and setting prices. And it means building a network that will offer vital support. Doing all that is hard enough for anyone - but particularly for introverts. To make a success of freelancing, you'll need to learn some new skills, push yourself to meet some challenges and build up your confidence. The Freelance Introvert will show you how to make that happen. It will teach you all about creating and managing your freelance business, from setting aims and getting set up to time management, working with clients and marketing. Written by Tom Albrighton - author, veteran freelancer, ProCopywriters co-founder and a confirmed introvert - The Freelance Introvert is the book you need for the life you want.

    Really good stuff. First, as a self-promoting effort: it worked. I now follow Tom online and he's full of good tips and reactions that are worth reading, for the form or the subject. It was odd reading a book written in the time of coronavirus, and actually start seeing the word printed on paper with the freelancer anguish of not having work. Speaking of which, Tom has very appropriate and enlightening reactions to people asking freelancers for lower price. Anyhow, I really enjoyed the book and do Really good stuff.

It was odd reading a book written in the time of coronavirus, and actually start seeing the word printed on paper with the freelancer anguish of not having work. Speaking of which, Tom has very appropriate and enlightening reactions to people asking freelancers for lower price. Anyhow, I really enjoyed the book and dotted it throughout with post-it notes to come back to later; because of the few exercises proposed, but mostly the tips. I am not giving it a 5-star review because I feel like it fell just shy of being perfect. I was left wanting for more; namely a more complete chapter on how to actually engage with new prospects and find clients. Don't get me wrong, it's in the book... but I just wanted more practical tips. The book does feel short (which is both a good and a bad thing) and you can definitely tell it's printed by Amazon (in Poland if that matters to anyone). The physical object itself felt a bit cheap. The content however is really good, and a very good introduction for any introvert out there, freelancing or not. I guess I'll get my fifth star out of following Tom on social medias.

First of all understanding the strengths and weaknesses I might have for this kind of work and how to make my skills fill in any gaps I might fear I have because of my perceptions about being an introvert. Then he unpacks those nagging negative self-beliefs and gives tools to work better, smarter and truer to who you are. Really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants to take the plunge into the freelance world but is unsure if they will be able to make it work.

    Not just for introverts! Tom’s guide to freelance life contains valuable advice and shared experience that ALL freelancers can benefit from. I’m very much an extrovert but still found his perspective interesting and helpful. I particularly enjoyed his take on the five stages of charging, and found myself nodding vigorously to his wisdom about social media and how to deal with the pressures of social media (“...social media makes a bad mood better and a good mood worse”).

    This was very helpful, informative, and if you’re an introvert getting your feet wet with thoughts of freelance, this is a must read. The tone did get a little monotonous at times, which is the reason I gave it four stars. It’s expected with books that are loaded with information, but the chapter summaries at the end for quick recap are helpful.

    Can't say that I have learned much from this book but that's because I'm not a new copywriter anymore, and haven't been since a good while. That shouldn't detract from the value that this book can bring to new freelancers. Some of the advice is common sense, some is well known but all of it is sound Can't say that I have learned much from this book but that's because I'm not a new copywriter anymore, and haven't been since a good while.

    I enjoyed this book from a freelance copywriter I’m dabbing into freelance web design and as an introvert I can relate to a lot of the points Tom covers in this book. Great eye opener about how we introverts prefer to work but also how to become confident about what we do.
