Publisher's Summary

Are you an introvert?

If you're happy in your own company most of the time, have just a few really close friends, and prefer to work alone, the answer is probably yes. 

Introverts find external stimulation overwhelming, so they look for ways to retreat from it. A situation that’s easy or fun for one person can be way too much for an introvert. That's fine, as long as they have a choice. But that can change when they go to work.

Modern working styles like open-plan offices, brainstorming, and teamwork can be really hard on introverts. The hands-on work is okay, but the emotional labor of working with others can be draining. 

Freelancing offers introverts a way out - a chance to work alone, control their workload, and create their own workspace. It can be ideal. However, it also takes work. 

Going freelance means running a one-person business. It means setting direction, organizing your schedule, and setting priorities. It means hustling for work and setting prices. And it means building a network that will offer vital support. 

Doing all that is hard enough for anyone - but particularly for introverts. To make a success of freelancing, you'll need to learn some new skills, push yourself to meet some challenges, and build up your confidence. 

The Freelance Introvert will show you how to make that happen. It will teach you all about creating and managing your freelance business, from setting aims and getting set up to time management, working with clients, and marketing. 

Here's what you'll learn:

  • Getting started
  • Choosing your future
  • Getting set up
  • Managing your time
  • Working with clients
  • Marketing yourself
  • Setting and agreeing prices
  • Building your confidence
  • Choosing positive beliefs

Written by Tom Albrighton - author, veteran freelancer, ProCopywriters cofounder, and a confirmed introvert - The Freelance Introvert is the book you need for the life you want.

Better understand yourself & how to enjoy success

I found this a very useful book that has given me a better understanding of why I made the career choices that I've made. I listened to the book and found the narration well produced and professionally delivered. If one of the reasons you've chosen the life of a freelancer is because you a more of an introvert than an extrovert, this is the book for you.

Inspiring for the INTJ

I enjoyed this book. Being an introvert I related to the content and I enjoyed its narration. The narrator spoke clearly and was easy to understand and the author proposed several good ideas I will take into account. I especially liked the chapter on time management.

Great book for introverts

The book dismisses some of the myth about freelance. It is custom designed for introverts with plenty of advice how to use to your advantage and overcome typical weaknesses of an introvert personality.

Great Book just what I needed to hear!

Thank you Tom this book has really resonated with me. I am a freelance musician and have struggled with turning into a business and i realise now it was because I wasn’t leaning into my introverted ways and using them to my advance. This book has given me a roadmap to help me on my freelance journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You Rock ! 🤟🤟

Gentle, calming and helpful - the book & voice!

It's rare to see the name of the narrator of an audio book on the title of the book. Made me curious from the set off. But now, after listening, I can understand why. Sheri's voice is gentle, calming and helpful in communicating the messages of the book. Her reading matches the subject perfectly. Being an introvert sometimes seems like a badge to hide, not to display. This book will help anyone who understands that being an introvert is about how you think and feel, not who are or what you do. I enjoyed listening to Sheri speaking, and worthy that she shares the title page of the interesting book by Tom Albrighton.
