    Question Beginner material for freelancing

    Hi, I would like to get into web freelancing part-time, but before I do that I would like to read at least one book that goes over the following.

    • Payment Methods
    • Contracts
    • Legal Issues
    • Planning
    • Dealing with clients
    • What to charge
    • etc...


    I have been eying this kit - The Web Design Business Kit 2.0, but I'm not sure if this is for beginners or not. Could someone please recommend a good book to help me get myself started. Initially I want to take on a few small projects to see how it goes and build from there.

    Thanks!

    what about: The Principles Of Successful Freelancing from SitePoint? Have a look in the Books section for more books and literature.
