Being self-employed is incredibly liberating, but the reality of working full time as a home based freelancer comes with some challenges.
A genuine drawback of working at home is that at times it can feel a bit lonely. It is easy to find oneself feeling quite isolated and apart from the outside world. There is no office banter, nobody to share a problem with and nobody to discuss that Netflix box set you’ve become addicted to. Ok, there will be telephone conversations with clients and prospective customers and even sales people enthusing about water coolers or PET testing services. But you won’t have Suzi at the next desk telling you how much prosecco she drank at the weekend, or Adrian complaining about the cost of car insurance. Will you miss the irritating office bore? Actually, you just might. I know I did...

Have you ever dreamed of escaping the 9 to 5 and enjoying the freedom of working from home? Perhaps you simply want to enjoy making some extra cash on your own terms? If the answer to either of those questions is "yes" then I believe you will be interested to read my book The Magic In A Freelance Web Design Business.
This isn't a book about how to design Websites, you've already got that covered. Instead, it is packed with genuine practical advice backed up with real life examples showing exactly how to take control, be your own boss, win clients and make money working from home. I have condensed ten years of real life experience into the pages and produced a guide that is packed with answers.
