Words don't quite express how excited I am about this book. I started working on it officially in November of 2018. This book was born out of 20 years of freelance blood, sweat and tears. Mostly tears! I have been fortunate to have been able to make it this far as a freelance artist. I won't lie, I struggled on and off the first 10 years of my career as I worked to identify who my clients were, but most importantly, what my purpose was as an artist. My mission evolved and with that change, so did my brand identity and target market. This is the kind of book I wish that I would have read while I was pursuing my college degree. It would have helped me save so much stress and headaches.
While my maturity as an artist back then was still in it's infancy, It still helps to have some guidance when you're on the path to entrepreneurship. My life experiences so far, have helped me shape this book. This book will help artists land bigger paying clients, generate multiple revenue streams, learn proven marketing techniques and identify, find and acquire new clients (and most importantly, keep them coming back!)
As an added bonus, the book is also equipped with Augmented Reality technology. After the customer downloads a free app, they can hover their phone over any of the 20 images in the book, and watch and listen as animation and live videos will pop up on their phone. I am confident that this book will help you in your freelance career and give you the confidence you need to take those risks, make those pitches, and create opportunities for yourself without fear.
