You’ve all read the books about starting out in freelancing – the ones that discount the time spent “preparing and perfecting” your brand, as a means to avoid shouting: “I’m in business! Come and get it!”

I couldn’t wait to begin full-time freelancing, but dreaded the sales aspect. Loud announcements? Drawing attention to myself? Horrifying.

Cold calling? Are you even a little serious? I don’t even like calling for pizza.
