The Freelance Introvert: Work the way you want without changing who you are by Tom Albrighton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
For someone starting out on a new venture (like me!) this is a useful book filled with guidance and reassurance. Even as an introvert (although myself I am an ambivert – a bit of both) you can build a solo freelance career doing what you love.
It was encouraging to read in this book a lot of the things I am already doing without realising it. Ways to interact with people in a less confrontational manner, saving lots of stress. Methods to promote your business and gain clients without having to put on an act and “talk the talk”. You do can be yourself and succeed your way.
Here’s to many years of working at my computer in my pyjamas! Or jeans and t-shirts! Comfortable clothing certainly means I can concentrate on the work at hand.
