Hi, new here and new to wanting to freelance. Been thinking about it for time, usual story. Knee deep in the s**t that is the rat race and my talents and interests lie elsewhere. Basically I'm looking to set myself up as a video post production and graphic design business primarily, but to go off into related areas as required. Including photography, podcasting, videography, web compression for video, etc.... Anyways. What I am planning first if to go semi-freelance, get a job a lot closer to home (currently my commute is 4 hours standard a day, which is having a big effect on my health, anyways I digress) to cover most of my standard monthly outgoings, rent, heat etc... and gradually as I focus on the freelancing leave behind that work. So, phew, yes I have a question. My question is: Any books/publication recommendations relating to my business intentions? Or very good and must have general things? The "Financial Times" Guide to Business Start Up 2009: The Only Annually Updated Guide for Entrepeneurs (Financial Times Series): Sara Williams: Amazon.co.uk: Books seems to be close to what I'm looking for, but I reckon this will be quite general and more in the realm of traditional business, like sales and that. There is also this one The Small Business Start-up Workbook: A Step-by-step Guide to Starting the Business You've Dreamed of: Cheryl D. Rickman, Dame Anita Roddick: Amazon.co.uk: Books Which again would be quite general I think. Has anyone got any recommendations to look at? I want to make sure I'm doing things properly. Sorry if this has already been asked and that, not having much luck with the search. Thanks. makemassair.
