This E-Book is tailored for the freelancers working in media industries such as TV, Film and Photography.
Starting a freelance business on your own can be daunting, and the legal stuff that goes with it pretty boring, right? No one likes to read about that stuff.
But I believe that the more you know, the more in control of your business you will be (and making better decisions), and the less reliant you’ll be on hiring specialised/expert professionals charging fees to advise and do some work for you. Not only that but how many times have I had friends (or have I heard people discussing) asking me how to set up a freelance business.
Well, read the E-Book, it’s free and it’s brilliantly written by a fine lawyer, especially for freelancers (or soon to be). Even I’ve learned a few things from it myself (and I’ve been freelancing for a few years now).
After reading this resource, you will know which business entity to choose for your line of work, how to set up your business, understanding contract clauses (by the way, we’re releasing a FREE-lancer contract for you all next week, which should nicely complement this E-Book) , copyright laws (say you want to keep some footage for your showreel) and loading yourself up against late payments (yep, that’s a thing).
