About the book
As a freelancer, you might feel as though it’s you against the world. In many ways, it is. This is the great challenge and great opportunity that comes with the independent work lifestyle.
You’re dictating your own course, but you’re also responsible for making all of the things happen, big and small, to drive your career forward. And, as the adage goes, little things make big things happen.
Any successful entrepreneur knows that big changes don’t happen all at once. In fact, progress is most successfully achieved by through the implementation of small, measurable changes that can be optimized or improved upon over time. People in the tech world affectionately refer to this approach as “hacking,” and some of the most innovative businesses in the world have adopted it with great success.
This book takes the foundational principles of hacking and applies them to freelancers who are viewing their independent career paths as viable businesses of one. We’ve collected 40 hacks from our network, including a handful from some contributors who know, and distilled them into an easy to digest guide for growing yourself and your business.
