There are two types of freelancers this book will help - those just starting out and those who have been struggling to achieve their dreams of becoming a wealthy freelancer.

If you are just starting out, this is a great resource that will save you countless hours of going down the wrong trail. If you have been at it for awhile but not achieving the success you desire, this book will give you some solid tips and techniques to get you on the right path.

The first thing you should get clear about is being a wealthy freelancer means different things to different people. It is not all about money. Money is important and this book has plenty of tips on how to increase your income. But living the life you want is much more important than just making money. So this book has lots of tips and suggestions on how to decide what is important to you and how to balance your work with other areas of your life.

The book starts off with a discussion about what being a wealthy freelancer really means. This sets the tone for the rest of the book. It is very important that you understand the realities of being a freelancer, both the benefits and the downside.

Then the next twelve chapters give secrets to being a successful freelancer - starting with the most important secret - Mastering the Mental Game. "Research continues to tell us that most people simply do not take the time to set goals and put them in writing." If you are going to be successful, you must get clear on what you want, who you want to work with and what value you are going to bring to your clients.

Another very important secret is how to create an amazing buzz piece. The authors go into great detail to explain what a buzz piece is and how to craft one that will attract potential clients.

As an experienced writer new to promotional freelance writing, I've read many books covering various aspects of copywriting.

This book---which marries the insights of three successful freelance copywriters---is the standout. Forget the overpriced ebooks and programs of AWAI--read and reread "The Wealthy Freelancer" and take the advice and exercises to heart.

Along with Peter Bowerman's "Well-Fed Writer" this is one of the two best books on the topic. Bowerman, however, is a generalist--an approach that may not work well for many people. In contrast, Slaunwhite, Savage, and Gandia provide an approach designed to help the entrepreneurial freelancer develop specialty areas that will set him/her apart from the generalists.

I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. It is solid, hype-free, practical, and well written.

Whether you are new to freelancing or an experienced freelancer, this book has something to offer.

I had downloaded "The Wealthy Freelancer" to my Kindle for a plane trip to and from Austin, TX. I thought just to pass the time. Boy, did I ever pass the time quickly. These guys have written an amazingly compelling page turner that will resonate with new freelancers just having made the leap as well as old hands who think they have seen and heard it all. I am always skeptical about books like this, thinking it's just so much cheer leading. This is anything but that. From the opening chapter it is crystal clear that these guys have the street cred to talk the talk. I was disturbing my seat mate on the flight by periodically saying aloud, "I've done that" or "I've thought that" or "Damn Right!" This is a book that I will keep as a reference manual and a booster shot for those times when I need reminding why I escaped from my office cubicle. In summation I would say you can read "The Wealthy Freelancer" now or waste several years of your life, read it later and say, "Why didn't I think of that."

This book is well above average for its genre. No, that's not damning with faint praise, it's saying that you don't have to be into hype or marketing-speak to enjoy and benefit from it. Underneath the cheerleader-y language is... solid substance. It covers a wide array of freelancing issues, from marketing and pricing to time management and quality of life. If you're curious about the freelancing life, just starting out as a freelancer, or ready to take it to the next level, this book is worth reading. One of the things I liked best about it is that it doesn't take an all-or-nothing approach. You could apply the whole thing as a program, or take one piece of advice out of it and tweak one part of your practice.

Oddly, in spite of definitely NOT looking for an inspirational thing, I found myself looking at some of my "nahhh, that's probably unreachable" ideas in a new light after reading the book. But I also found some practical advice -- especially about marketing and pricing -- that cleared up what I was beginning to think of as hopeless mysteries.

If you're not sure if you want the book, go to their website and download the free sample chapters. Also, if you put it in your Amazon shopping cart and save it until you need something to kick your purchase price over the free-shipping limit, it will end up costing you less than a semi-decent lunch out.
