    Do you dream of being able to earn money while you sleep? Of seeing sales come in while you are out for dinner? Of creating a great product that is sustainable as a real, profitable business?

    I’ve been there and done it, and I love helping other people achieve the same success with their own products and side projects.

    In my practical book, I’ll help you to get started and throughout all stages of the launch of your own revenue generating side project.

    In 2009 I was one half of a successful web development consultancy business, working alongside my husband developing sites for clients. We launched our product Perch as a side project alongside our client work. It became profitable within 24 hours of going on sale, has now taken well over half a million dollars in revenue, and as of the beginning of 2013 became our entire business.

    We achieved this without funding, employees or any prior experience of launching a product.

    There are many similar stories out there. Freelancers and small agencies developing small products and making a viable success of them as a business. Unlike the startup dream of big wins, which is essentially more like pinning your hopes and dreams on winning the lottery one day, building up a small product business is possible for most of us. It requires consistent hard work and focus, but those things are within your control.

    This isn’t a book about “doing a startup”. This is a business book about diversifying your income as a freelancer, agency owner or possibly even as an employee. It is a practical book based on my own experience and also research into other similar businesses. I cover the real nuts and bolts of doing this along with actions you can take as you bring your own products to launch.
