Freelancing Foundations

by Tom Geller


Times are changing. While people want more stability, they also want freedom from the grind of a nine-to-five. With many activities now taking place from behind a screen – work, socializing, education, dating – it's only logical for an ambitious and free mind to look for ways to transition to freelancing.

However, freelancing can be exhausting with its many variables and demotivating without a boss around. Freelancing expert Tom Geller is here to help. His freelancing career has ranged from journalism to web design, with clients like Apple,, and the San Francisco Chronicle.

With Freelancing Foundations, Geller leverages his experience to provide you with the information you need to go freelance: creating goals, managing resources, building a portfolio, attracting clients, and marketing yourself.
