Description

Is self-employment or one of the other “new ways of working” right for you?

New Ways of Working – self-employment, starting your own business, freelancing, contracting, consulting, portfolio careers, “gigs”, working for start-ups. Do you fancy being the “Master of Your Own Destiny”? This ebook includes a range of pros and cons, stories from others who’ve tried and tips.

Now, maybe more than ever before, there are wonderful and increasing opportunities to be self-employed as a freelancer, consultant, coach, entrepreneur or having multiple careers (portfolio careers).

Technology, virtual working and online marketplaces have significantly opened up ways of working. You probably know people who are successful (or not) working in these ways.
But it’s not all positive – and is it the best choice for you? That’s the question I want to help you get some clarity on because it’s definitely not for everyone.

In this ebook I’ll cover off pros and cons, client experiences (including a case study snippet) and offer some tips and ideas that I hope will help you to not only understand the options better, but will give you more information on which to guide your decisions, next steps and career aspirations.

But it’s not all positive – and is it the best choice for you?

Typical Questions or Issues:

  • Could I work for myself?
  • What are the pros and cons of freelancing, consulting, contracting?
    The upsides are many and obvious. For example, you’re your own boss and you choose what you do, don’t do, how, when and where you want and with whom. You profit directly from your hard work and talents; in other words, you get to keep the money honey!
    But what about the downsides – how would you go with those?
  • Forced into freelancing
  • Portfolio career?
  • Is it a portfolio career or is it just two jobs?
  • Start-up boom
  • Freelancing boom
  • Could you use consulting, contracting, freelancing as an in-between solution – and if so, is it the best thing to do?
  • How do you charge for services? Challenges and approaches.
  • Common traps and tips

Is it right for you?
