New Book Shows Independent Workers How to Prosper in the Freelance Economy


A new book titled “The Wealthy Freelancer: 12 Secrets to a Great Income and an Enviable Lifestyle” (Penguin/Alpha, ISBN: 9781592579679, $16.95) shows freelancers, consultants and other solo professionals how to get the clients, income and quality of life they want in what economists are now dubbing the “Freelance Economy.”

Written by three successful freelancers — Steve Slaunwhite, Pete Savage and Ed Gandia — The Wealthy Freelancer provides solo professionals in virtually any field with dozens of proven and actionable strategies for increasing their income, landing better-quality clients and improving work-life balance. The book has gained traction quickly, climbing to the #64 sales rank in, reaching the #16 spot in Amazon’s “Business” category and maintaining a Top-100 ranking throughout its launch week, which began on March 8.

“Many freelance professionals are great at what they do,” said Ed Gandia, co-author of The Wealthy Freelancer. “But most of them struggle when it comes to getting great clients, growing their incomes, developing a healthy work-life balance, and getting the most out of their freedom and flexibility. The Wealthy Freelancer provides practical strategies for dealing with all of these factors — something no other book for this audience is addressing holistically.”

The Wealthy Freelancer is a timely resource. Freelancing is growing at a feverish pace as businesses continue to worry about the staying power of the economic recovery. It is estimated that one-third of the U.S. workforce is either freelancers, temporary or self-employed. Furthermore, the U.S. Labor Department reported that the number of self-employed Americans grew by 126,000 in the fourth quarter. And employers added a net 52,000 temporary and project-based jobs in January alone, the fourth consecutive month of gains.
