Be Your Own Boss- The Ultimate Guide to Freelance Writing Success- Book Review

Do you fancy yourself a writer?  Have you ever wondered how to take that passion for the written word and turn it into a source of income?  If you answered yes, then Be Your Own Boss- The Ultimate Guide to Freelance Writing Success is the book for you.  Written by Holli Ronquillo, Be Your Own Boss is an easy to read, easy to use guide to turning your dreams of becoming a professional writer into reality.  In Be Your Own Boss, Holli takes you step by step through the process of becoming a freelance writer.  Beginning with figuring out whether freelancing is even right for you, she then guides you through all the basics you need to consider before starting your business- what equipment you will need, what your legal options for your business structure, how to set your rates, choose your niche, and write up contracts.  Then she walks you through how to find jobs and market yourself, and what to do once you actually land some jobs.    The end of the book is full of wonderful resources for finding writing jobs online.  She lists tons of sites and gives a brief synopsis of how they work and whether she has personally used them, knows others who have, or whether they are just sites she's heard good things about.

OBM says:  In the interest of full disclosure, I received the Kindle version of this book in exchange for my honest review.  But I asked to review it because I do enjoy writing, and I've always wondered what it would take get some work as a writer.  Holli's book was very helpful to me, and after reading it, I have decided not to look into freelance writing right now.  But when I do, I know this information will be vastly helpful.  Holli has a very  easy to read style and offers lots of personal experiences as examples.  If you are at all interested in pursuing a career in freelance writing, I'd definitely recommend  spending the .99 cents and buying  Be Your Own Boss- The Ultimate Guide to Freelance Writing Success.
