Title sound a bit strange? I’ll forgive you for that.
It’s the title of a book by Curtis McHale. For those of you who are not familiar with Curtis, he’s one of my favourite writers on the subject of WordPress and business, along with Chris Lema. If you’re a freelancer or in the business of providing WordPress services, you should be reading his blog.
Back to his book, Don’t be an Idiot. What’s it all about?
Here’s a description from Curtis’s site:
So you want to start your own business do you? Well where do you start? How many hours a day will you be able to bill? How will you charge? do you know how to budget?
This is a no nonsense guide to running a small business and freelancing.
It’s not just my opinion either I interviewed over 10 other business owners and freelancers and you can get their advice as well. See video snippets.
It’s a really interesting book, and like all the posts on his blog, should be essential reading for freelancers everywhere. Read the book and check out the resources, and you’ll be wiser after, probably able to earn more while working the same as before or more efficiently.
