Growth is really hard, "evolution" is better. This book will help

You can earn 50% more next month than you did this month. It clicked for me when I realised I wasn't exempt from that word, business.

“I believe any freelancer will get HUGE benefit from reading this and applying the principles.”

“A down to earth book that really gets down to what needs to be said and adds value. Highly recommended”

Alastair Macartney

Freelancing is f ing difficult. It’s tough to plan for growth (in client volumes and revenue) when current income is too unstable to even consider anything beyond the here and now.

If you’re anything like I was five or six years ago there’s a nagging feeling you have, that something is holding you back from making more out of this. We all love what we do on a day-to-day basis but what’s the end game? After brief glimmers of hope and opportunity why does it always pan out the same financially?

Five years ago I threw in the towel as a designer, overwhelmed, overworked and underpaid. I’d failed. After a brief incarceration a corporate 9-5 something changed. I relaunched as a freelancer and the second time was very different. In this book I’ve laid out everything I wish I’d have known first time around.

I'm under no illusions, you don't care about me and my story.

You do care about keeping the lights on though. You do care about putting food on the table and you hate it when you can’t be 100% sure that those responsibilities will be taken care of two months from now. I had the same struggle, I'm still "in the field" too it's just I now have a different story to tell. So I wrote this book.

Honest advice from someone who is still in the field

I’m not some faceless, distant, self-important asshole "guru" whose primary business is selling information to you instead of selling a service to clients. I still head up the agency I built from my freelance business (Tone). Granted, I’m not a slave to money any more. But let’s just say that I don’t work four hours a week, either.

The five phases of freelancer business evolution and why they matter for your tiny business




Repel bad apples, attract dream clients

In the large majority of cases, it's you who decides the calibre of client you get. You get the final say on the price, you draw out the deliverables, you get final say on deadlines and you control how you're perceived online.

In Phase II you'll understand the power of perception. Building a message which repels bad apples and attracts dream clients (who can pay 10x more).


Build a reputation and exposure

Have you ever stopped to wonder why 'A List' freelancers ended up A list? Was it a time in the game thing? Maybe. Was it luck? Maybe. Or was it that they committed to actually being vocal in their space, building a reputation by providing value at every opportunity and shouting about if online?

Phase III in your evolution cycle is building up your own reputation. When this reputation directly correlates with your income this is a big deal, believe me.

Level out the 'income roller coaster'

Why do you work so hard to win a client then happily bid them goodbye once the project is over? Then why aren't you diversifying the income tracks you have into your business? Income stability as a freelancer isn't taboo. It just takes a small tweak in the way you see client relationships.

Phase IV sees us tackle that 'freelancing demon', income instability. The way we're 'told' to do freelancing is wrong. Let's fix it.


Work less while earning more

Freelancers wear lots of hats. We occupy every role in our businesses. It’s exhausting. We’re responsible for sales, marketing customer service, production, accounts and everything in between. Your business has an infrastructure problem. It simply isn't equipped to deal with life without you in it.

Phase V in your evolution cycle involves loosening the reins. Taking a step outside the day-to-day to build something that can grow with less of 'YOU' managing it.

I want to help you break through your plateau and give you over 249 pages of tried & tested actions for evolving and growing your business. Ideas and techniques I wish I’d known that first time around as a freelancer.
