Fed up with people owning you? Whether you want more freedom within your company or to branch out on your own, this personal and practical book explores the rules and tools of becoming a successful free agent. For most people, work used to mean exchanging skills and knowledge for money and security. Except now the equation has changed because the security has gone - and maybe for the good. The new equation means there is a rapidly growing trend that sees more and more people exchanging their skills and knowledge for money on a more short-term contractual basis - project by project, or even day by day. This book empowers those who know that long-serving corporate life is not for them, but don't know how to break free. It sets out the rules and skills needed to turn yourself into a successful Free Agent. A Free Agent is anyone who is taking responsibility for the way they earn money. This book allows you to do just that. It will help you acquire the skills and learn the rules that will enable you to adapt to any set of circumstances, thrive and earn money the way you want to. Because none of us know exactly how we're going to be working and earning in the future, but independence is a good bet for success.
