Book Review: Make Freelancing REALLY Pay by Daisy McCarty

Considering a freelancing career? Looking to take your freelancing career to the next level? Make Freelancing REALLY Pay by Daisy McCarty can help.

A practical guide to helping you "find the best clients, communicate with them effectively, negotiate a profitable price for their services, and build a robust referral network" is what Make Freelancing REALLY Pay is all about. In this no-nonsense book, you'll learn about: the different types of clients and who you should be going after, how to set a respectable minimum rate, why you shouldn't work for free, how to increase the perceived value of your services, how to improve your communication skills, and more.

Because this book isn't niche-specific, any freelancer can apply the guidelines and advice McCarty provides to her career. This quick and easy read with its conversational tone will inspire you to reconsider the value of your work and get the wheels turning in your mind for where you want your career to go next. Make Freelancing REALLY Pay also gets into some of the nitty-gritty of freelancing work like hourly rates, payment terms, and what is considered a rewrite.

Where I feel this book will definitely be helpful is in getting freelancers to stop discounting their work or working for free just to be published. Make Freelancing REALLY Pay shows all freelancers how to value the experience they bring to the table and price their work accordingly.
