From Classes to Clients

From Classes to Clients is a personal recollection of a first-time freelancing experience. The writing reflects on the various challenges and learning experiences involved with working for a client in comparison to standard class projects. The book also acts as a how-to guide for others initiating work with a freelance client, calling out the most important lessons and tips learned along the way. Topics covered include writing a contract, getting a signature and deposit, and even how to gracefully cut ties. From Classes to Clients also captures the excitement and anxiousness involved with working with a client for the first time through the illustrations both on the cover and within the book. Freelancing can be a rocky experience, but this book can help make that transition from classes a little easier.
