3 things I loved about Creative, Inc…
Leave the inspiration to someone else. This book tells you how to become a creative freelancer, and spends little time on why. I love that approach, it’s about how hard work works, not about inspiring you to take a leap without a net.
Their resources list in the back of the book will point you toward information for all parts of your freelance experience. From copyright to sole proprietorship you can find answers here.
Real life examples
There is nothing better than hearing the hurtles and successes of a variety of real life creative freelancers. They went outside the box to find examples in all sorts of creative industries including a prop stylist, animators, art directors and even an accountant.
This book is a must read for anyone thinking of making the leap from a full time job with benefits to a freelance creative career. By Meg Mateo Ilasco & Joy Deangdeelert Cho available from chronicle books and amazon.
