There is a new must-read book for freelancers and we interviewed its author! ‘Art for Money’ is out today and we’d love to tell you about it.
“If you’re good at the thing you do, you’re 20% of the way to making proper money as a freelancer.”
Michael Ardelean, the author of ‘Art for Money’, is an ex-BMX pro, Entrepreneur, Agency Owner, and a now freshly new book writer. In this week’s podcast episode of The Freelancer Talk, we got the chance to talk to Michael about his first book release and to discuss the book. Yes, our podcast host Wouter got a copy pre-launch and he was very excited to be able to read it before others could.
‘Art for Money’ practically serves as a financial behavioral guide when it comes to making money for your Art. Being under 80 pages, it’s a quick read but that doesn’t make it any less valuable. Actually, we find the book incredibly valuable for creative freelancers who struggle with the concept of getting paid for what they do and most importantly in time!
Throughout the book, Michael offers a variety of templates and a set of useful tools to implement into your own freelance business. By using his own entrepreneurial and freelance journey, he shares how he bumped into some problems, had some complicated clients, and how he found a way to work with money and be fairly and correctly paid. Struggles we’ve all come across!
But ‘Art for Money’ is about much more than making money. It’s about creating healthy and valuable relationships with clients and how to change your mindset into thinking that just being talented isn’t going to give you the equivalent pay. Something that we’ve been addressing many times over here at The Freelancer Talk.
We’ll stop going into details now because we encourage every creative freelancer to give it a read as the book will most definitely help you and give you the knowledge you need to set yourself up for success!
