This is a book for people like us, and we all know who we are.

We make our own hours, keep our own profits, chart our own way. We have things like gigs, contracts, clients, and assignments. All of us are working toward our dreams: doing our own work, on our own time, on our own terms. We have no real boss, no corporate nameplate, no cubicle of our very own. Unfortunately, we also have no 401(k)s and no one matching them, no benefits package, and no one collecting our taxes until April 15th.

It's time to take stock of where you are and where you want to be. Ask yourself: Who is planning for your retirement? Who covers your expenses when clients flake out and checks are late? Who is setting money aside for your taxes? Who is responsible for your health insurance?

Take a good look in the mirror: You are.

The Money Book for Freelancers, Part-Timers, and the Self-Employeddescribes a completely new, comprehensive system for earning, spending, saving, and surviving as an independent worker. From interviews with financial experts to anecdotes from real-life freelancers, plus handy charts and graphs to help you visualize key concepts, you'll learn about topics including:

Managing Cash Flow
When the Cash Isn't Flowing Your
Way
Getting Real About
What You're Really Earning
Tools for Getting
Out of Debt and Into Financial Security
Saving Consistently
When You Earn Irregularly
What To Do When a
Client's Check Doesn't Come In
Health Savings
Accounts and How To Use Them
Planning for
Retirement, Taxes and Dreams-All On Your Own

"'The Money
Book
' lays out the key issues for workers who don't have benefits. It hits on
the major themes of saving regularly, planning for retirement, and managing your
taxes when you, the worker, are ultimately responsible. Its conversational tone
makes it easily accessible for readers who aren't inclined to read about how to
crunch numbers and budget."
-Associated Press


"The Money Book" is
an indispensable survival guide that belongs on the desk of every independent
worker who is willing do whatever it takes to achieve
success.
-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"Through trial and
error, veteran freelancers D'Agnese and Kiernan worked out a money-management
system that allowed them to save for emergencies and retirement, pay off debt,
buy benefits, cover their taxes and survive the droughts in business that seem
an inevitable part of working for yourself.
They convey all this in
a book that's irreverent and hugely entertaining."
-MSN
Money

"Developed from the personal experiences of the authors, this book is fun and
relevant, with no other recent work quite comparable. Recommended for anyone who
is self-employed now or is facing a new work-life situation."
