Sarah Duran about The Freelance Way

October 9, 2023

Sarah Duran, who is one of the leading voices on freelance business in the U.S., praised The Freelance Way in the recent issue of Hustler’s Manifesto newsletter:

The Freelance Way by Robert Vlach is the most comprehensive freelance guide I have ever read. A lot of books on freelancing are just repurposed “best practices” that you could get from Google, but Robert’s book shares deep expertise and experience that you can only have from being an independent worker for many years. Instead of giving silver bullets and “secret” formulas, Robert shares his incredible knowledge as a freelancer and top-tier business consultant, which gives freelancers the information they need to forge their own path.

One highlight is the chapter on pricing. Pricing is so hard to talk about because everyone wants you to tell them how to do it when the reality is that pricing your work is the journey of a lifetime and is so specific to the industry and the type of work you do. Robert goes into great detail on so many pricing models and the theory behind them, giving freelancers a comprehensive resource for defining their worth.

The Freelance Way: Best Business Practices, Tools & Strategies for Independent Professionals has been published in 2022 by HarperCollins and is available worldwide from Amazon, along with several translations.
