Start Freelancing Now eBook Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

I know you have heard about my eBook a bunch in the last month, so let me introduce you to a different one.  🙂  Where my eBook concentrates on building a money-making blog over time, Start Freelancing Now covers the many other ways you can start making money right off the bat.

Quick Intro

The author, Martin, runs a few different sites including Studenomics, which was one of the first ones I started commenting on in late 2009.  He’s actually younger than me but figured out the benefits of self employment and making money online way before I did.  So when he said he had written a new eBook just about freelancing, I jumped at the chance to read it.

Okay, so you know me…my posts are usually short and to the point.  So here’s the meat of it all:

Start Freelancing Now covers these topics and more:

  • Why you need to start freelancing right now.
  • How to get started.
  • Tips to make more after you start.
  • Common freelancing questions.
  • Time management tips.
  • Building your following and a team.
  • Ways to grow your business.

My Overall View

It truly is more than 50 pages of info to get your butt in gear right now.  Plus, you can email Martin with questions anytime.  AND he offers a 100% money-back guarantee.  In short, if you were ever interested in freelancing as a side hustle or even turning it into a full-time job someday, then this guide could be a huge help for you right now.

NOT Get Rich Quick

Now, if you are looking for ways of getting rich quick, this eBook and my own are not for you.  Martin explains how you can start making money right now, but it will take time to grow your reputation, find your niche, and turn any business into a big money-maker.  Sorry to have to remind you, but if there was a way to get rich overnight, everyone would know about it and we’d all be retired right now.  BUT, Start Freelancing Now does show you how you can make back the price of the book itself within the week if you buckle down, use its tips to find a freelancing gig, and get it completed ASAP.  Personally, I am a big fan of a resource that tries to help you make your money back right away.

What if you bought HIMMB?

My book and Martin’s compliment each other very well.  I concentrate on the blogging side of making money online through advertising and then mention other ideas.  This eBook concentrates on those other ideas and how to get you started.  No blog necessary.  And no, we did not plan it that way, lol.


Right now, Martin is calling everyone out to read his book and send him freelancing proposals.  The best proposal will win $100 to get them started and will be published on the SFN main site!!!  So if just making some money for freelancing wasn’t floating your boat, now you have the shot for $100 just for great ideas!

So please check it out and let me know what you think.  If you have read it already, what was your favorite part?  If you haven’t, have you ever thought about freelancing before?

FYI:  I worked at a dead end cubicle job from 2005-2011 for about $30,000 per year.  I went self-employed in July 2011 and make between $70,000-$90,000 through blogging, professional pet sitting, hubby's reffing, and our rental home.  If you’d like to start your own site (link to my free step-by-step guide), I highly suggest checking out Bluehost (my referral link with a nice discount for you, PLUS a free custom header banner from me!).  Please contact me any time at budgetingfunstuff*at*gmail*dot*com with questions or just to brainstorm! I’d love to help!

  1. can you tell me if there is specific content in this book for freelance writing? I am most interested in that niche, but the description of the book makes it sound very general. Thanks!
    PS – if I decide to purchase, I’ll do it through your affil link!

  2. Hey Jen, funny you mention that. I actually cover EXACTLY how to get a freelance writing gig with some unconventional tipis. It has helped many readers thus far. I also offer a free coaching session where I address all questions. Oh and there’s a money back guarantee. You really have nothing to lose. I just want to help ambitious folks get into freelancing.

  3. @Jen, yep, there is definitely specific content for freelance writing as Martin described. 🙂 Sorry for my delayed response, I just buckled down for the day.

  4. funny I just came from commented his blog:)

    I also mentioned on The Financial Blogger in comment to his book, that it looks tempting but I got to focus on the projects going now
