Author of The Freelance Way — an international business bestseller published worldwide in 2022 by HarperCollins and translated into 5 other languages
My work covers two distinct areas of entrepreneurship:
The first is business consulting for top-notch professionals and business owners, with whom I collaborate either long-term, on shaping their business strategy, or via one-off consultations whenever needed. This is a fairly expensive service, which I provide mostly remotely within the EU. It is usually appreciated by experienced entrepreneurs who want to have something like a “partner without a share” — that is, an independent expert who understands their business over the long-term, in great depth, and thus improves the quality of their decision-making and management. I have over 300 consulting cases under my belt and would be happy to take on yours.
The second area of my work is the systematic business support of independent professionals (aka freelancers), which I have been doing full-time as a publicist, consultant and lecturer since 2005, long before it was cool :) Supporting freelancers is something I enjoy and find fulfilling, as my professional calling. Together with my great colleagues, we take care of the two big professional communities that I founded: The pan-European Freelancing.eu and the Czech Navolnenoze.cz, which together belong among the largest and most active freelancing communities in Europe, supporting hundreds of thousands of freelancers in their business. I wrote the bestselling book The Freelance Way, published worldwide by HarperCollins and translated into several other languages.
