Because raw talent and good ideas aren’t enough. And because you can do this. Really. By Amy Hood and Jen Hood, co-founders of Hoodzpah (the branding agency site you’re on now), Odds & Sods (a goods line), and Connecting Things (a creative meet up).

We never thought of ourselves as writers. But we kept getting the same questions about how we started our business. After thinking about our mistakes, wins and lessons learned, we wrote it all down into a freelance business book. Freelance, and Business, and Stuff is for anyone looking for more control in their creative career. Freelance can truly enrich your life. And you don’t have to be full-time freelance to enjoy the perks. It can be a way to make side cash to supplement your income; to test a new profession or skill without ditching your steady day job; and to work on projects that fulfill you (if you’re feeling stifled or stagnant in your work). When you run your own freelance or creative business, it gives you more power to choose how you work (when and where), what you work on, who you work with, and how much you make. The gain is more flexibility and control. The tradeoff is more responsibility.

You truly don’t have to be a genius to start your own business, and you don’t need thousands of dollars. Heck, you don’t even need a college degree. Best of all, you definitely don’t need permission. But you do need patience and diligence in spades. Add a little common sense for making clear decisions, enough skill to do good work, a healthy hunger for knowledge, and a shake of pliability (adapting is key) and you’re good to go.

This freelance business book includes:

  • Worksheets to help you work out your hourly and flat rate pricing, budget, and more.
  • Checklists of key to-do items for new business owners
  • Guides to creating a business plan, setting up a project workflow from contract to completion, and determining the health of your company.
  • Fun but unnecessary humor from yours truly
  • Tons of personal tips on how we do business at Hoodzpah
  • Suggestions on how to win more pitches, present proofs, and get approvals.
  • Thoughts on promoting yourself without it making you and others cringe
  • Recommended resources for insurance, accounting, bookkeeping, contracts, and more.
  • 13 chapter opener posters that you can easily razor out and hang on your wall.
  • The occasional typo or rambling sentence that makes this book edition rare and unique in 20 years!

*This book is a revamped and reworked iteration of our original book Hoodzpah’s Guide to Starting a Business.
** Information on filing and taxes in this book is geared towards United States residents. Still, 95% of the content can apply to anyone living anywhere!
