This book was mostly written for novelists, but I found it to be extremely helpful to me as a freelance copywriter.
I've consumed a lot of content in the past related to marketing as a freelance writer: Peter Bowerman's Kindle Ebook, "The Well-Fed Writer" or Ed Gandia's podcasts, "The High-Income Business Writing Podcast" and "The Smarter Freelancing Podcast", for example. These are great resources for marketing strategies. However, I've found that none of these resources really gave me what I was looking for in terms of actual steps that I could take to start making a full-time income as a freelancer immediately.
Honoree Corder attacks the problem from a different angle. Instead of giving you marketing strategies, she focuses more upon the "inner game" of successful freelancing; the philosophical beliefs that you must have to be successful. This is important because I suspect that what really makes most successful freelancers achieve abundance is that they sit in front of their computer every day and write.
And why do they do this? It's because they believe that they will make lots of money if they do. And why do they believe this? No one knows. Once a person becomes successful, the idea that "if I write, I will make more and more money" becomes self-reinforcing. They keep writing, so they keep making money, and then the money convinces them to write more. But if we're not making much money off of our writing, how do we convince ourselves that we will? How do successful freelancers ever motivate themselves to write in the first place?
In my own life, I've found it very difficult to pass up non-writing jobs that don't pay very well, even though I know that these jobs will take time away from my writing and only prolong the process of building a successful business. So I understand exactly what Corder is talking about. I suspect that many writers are unsuccessful for exactly this reason, not because they just don't know enough about marketing, but because they are just not motivated to do the excruciatingly difficult work of writing whatever it is they want to write.
In order to solve this problem, Corder teaches various tricks that a writer can employ to program his or her mind to produce motivation. She also provides arguments as to why the prevalent idea that "you can't make money off of writing" is just a very powerful illusion.
It's all in your head. So stop worrying about it and start writing.
I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
