“So helpful, well written, and more than I got out of school.”
Freelance, and Business, and Stuff is a book for any creative looking for more control in their career.
Whether you’re taking on your own clients for the first time, or looking to level up your studio after years in a rut: we wrote this book to give creatives easy-to-act on principles that will truly make a difference.
“This book is literally the best thing I’ve bought this year I can’t recommend enough!”
Running a successful business that doesn’t stress you out or burn you out is an art all its own. Once we learned some simple principles from our own mentors and peers, our own studio took off in ways we never could have imagined.
We went from making ends meet, to making six figure salaries. We went from just working at “friends rates” to working with dream clients like 20th Century Fox and the Los Angeles Lakers. We’re sharing with you what others have generously shared with us about starting and running a successful creative studio.
