If you’re thinking about going freelance — or wondering why your freelancing isn’t earning you much — this e-book is for you!
Success begins with setting up your freelance business right. With creating a solid business plan and marketing plan tailored to focus on your best opportunities.
The problem is, most freelancers skip all that. They dive in and take any and all work they find, at any pay rate. They don’t think of their freelancing as a business at all. Then, they wonder why they’re broke.
To help writers and other freelance creatives acquire the business basics for success, I recently got together with experienced freelancer and coach Neil Tortorella to create a 4-week Freelance Writers Den bootcamp. It covered how to plan, launch, and grow a successful freelance business: Freelance Business Bootcamp.
This turned out to be one of the most practical, engaging bootcamps in the Den’s history! We provided concrete exercises that helped freelancers clarify the exact steps they should take to launch right and earn more.
Now, the Freelance Business Bootcamp e-book offers all the materials from that $200 bootcamp, in a handy, affordable format! The e-book also includes all the questions we got at the end of each live bootcamp session, and our answers.
Freelance Business Bootcamp gives you the benefit of our 40+ years of freelancing experience, and spells out all the critical nuts-and-bolts you need to start your business right — and keep it growing.

Early reviews for Freelance Business Bootcamp (the E-Book)
I like how you explained the SWOT and business plan. Previous business advice I’d received wasn’t specific to freelance writers. I needed knowledge geared toward solopreneurs and services. Your book covers this beautifully.
I also appreciate your detailing every realistic disaster and how to avoid them, especially client management. Everything it takes to start once accepted is right there, something that can be scary if left to an inexperienced imagination. You tell exactly how to proceed.
For me, the best part was the convenience of this knowledge being in one place. I look forward to more of your books!
Thank you, Carol and Neil! —Deidre M. Simpson
