“The Oracle Opportunity is a great introduction to the world of freelance consulting; written with firsthand-experience and realinsight, it brings together  a set of strategies to address the main challenges encountered by first time freelancers—from preparing for an interview through to managing your time-sheets, invoicing and getting paid. It’s not just for first timers either as old timers will find it useful to refresh some of their knowledge, for example on personal marketing and how that can now be applied to social media. A really useful set of tips and trade secrets.”
