Are you a frustrated freelancer, coach, consultant, or service provider?
Frustrated because you don’t get the clients you want or work you enjoy?
Frustrated because you work more hours than you want to but don’t earn as much as you’d like to?
It doesn’t have to be that way.
You don’t have to tolerate toxic clients.
You don’t have to put up with late payers, low payers, or non-payers.
You don’t have to take on work you hate just to pay the bills.
The feast and famine cycle is not inevitable.
You can earn good money doing the thing you love for people you like.
You can have your happy ever after.
And my book will teach you how.
What you'll learn
Despite its title, The Freelance Fairytale is not a fluffy bedtime story. It’s packed full of practical, actionable advice to help you overcome the common challenges faced by freelancers so you can create the business you deserve.
The Freelance Fairytale will teach you:
How to avoid the toxic swamp
Not every opportunity is a good opportunity, but how do you stick to the path and steer clear of distractions? I’ll show you how to ditch crappy clients, avoid terrible advice, and stay on track to your happy ever after.
How to tackle your trolls
Ever find yourself thinking, “that wouldn’t work for me,” or “I could never do that”? You’re probably wrong. Learn how to overcome some of the biggest barriers to success – self-doubt, procrastination, and resistance to change.
How to build a house of bricks
How strong are your business foundations? Are you working on your terms, or do you let your clients dictate how, when and where you work? Build your business out of bricks, not straw, and stand firm in achieving your goals.
How to price based on the value you deliver
Are your prices too low? If you even have to think about it for a second, the answer is probably yes. Price is what you charge, but value is what you deliver – show your clients you’re worth the investment.
How to identify your ideal clients
You can only go out and get your ideal clients if you know who they are. So who do you want to attract? Your ideal client isn’t “anybody”, and just because you can help someone doesn’t mean you should.
How to sell without the sleaze
Does the idea of selling scare you silly? Worried you’ll come across as spammy, sleazy, or too salesy? I’ll show you how to get comfortable selling and make your ideal clients excited about buying from you.
How to choose your marketing channels
Should you do SEO, PPC, email, blogs, podcasts, videos, social media, direct mail, lead magnets? Do you need to write a book, host a webinar, build a community? With so many options, it’s easy to see why freelancers get confused, but I keep marketing simple.
How to get the right support
Cinderella had a fairy godmother. Aladdin had a genie. Snow White had seven dwarfs. You don’t need to do everything alone – even heroes have help sometimes.

“Reading this book has put SO much into perspective for me as a small business owner. It’s given me food for thought and made me come up with actions to take to push my business forward. It’s clear and concise, and every page has something relevant and useful. You cannot help but feel the book was written for you. It has changed my way of thinking and I finally feel like I understand the areas of my business I need to focus on.” – Debbie, Fitness Instructor
Are you prepared to do the work?
The problem with fairytales is they give us false expectations of what life will be like. Wish upon a star, and all your dreams will come true.
Unfortunately, real life isn’t like that.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have your happy ever after.
You just have to do a little work first. And if you’re prepared to put in the work, you can have a business that gives you the lifestyle you want.
- You can attract great clients
- You can charge higher prices
- You can get paid upfront
- You can work on your terms
- You can get paid good money doing what you love for people you like
It’s just going to take a little more than magic beans to get you there.
This isn’t a “get rich quick” book. It doesn’t contain a secret success formula. It is a practical guide – stuff I do in my own business that enables me to have the business and lifestyle I want.
My goal with this book is to be for you the person I wish I had by my side in the early years of self-employment. Someone who understands the challenges of freelance life but also knows how to overcome them.
But I can’t do the work for you. Only you can make the changes you need to get you where you want to be. Are you ready to do that?
If all of the above sounds good to you, I’m confident you’ll find my book useful. But if for any reason, at any point, you don’t feel it’s value for money, let me know, and I’ll refund your pennies in full.
“Full of great pointers that are straightforward and pretty easy to action… they just need doing!!” – Matt, Graphic Designer
“The book has been written with the same clarity, knowledge and kindness I have experienced from you in your other writing and courses.” – Lorna, Copywriter
