FRH coverFollowing my last post on why I made the leap to the freelance life, I thought it might be apt to share with you a book that has helped me, in no small manner, along the way.

The book is ‘Be a Free Range Human: Escape the 9-5, Create a Life You Love and Still Pay the Bills‘ by Marianne Cantwell, and I recently reviewed it on one of my other blogs.

Here’s a taster of what I said:

“So many people fantasise about what they’d do if they won the lottery and didn’t have to commute every day to a job that is barely keeping their little grey cells ticking over, never mind filling their life with meaning. Well, Marianne’s book gives you the practical knowledge and ‘how to’ tips in order for you to not only dream a dream but live it too.”

For more, please read my full review.

Have you come across any other books that you’d recommend on this subject, i.e. how to make a living doing what you love? Please share below!
